The Na­tional Film and Sound Archive and Na­tional Por­trait Gallery have cre­ated a ma­jor trav­el­ling ex­hi­bi­tion doc­u­ment­ing the mak­ing and mar­ket­ing of Aus­tralian films. Starstruck draws on the NFSA’s collection of por­traits re­lat­ing to Aus­tralian fea­ture films from the early 20th cen­tury to to­day. Starstruck: Aus­tralian Movie Por­traits ex­plores the beau­ti­ful por­trai­ture emerg­ing from 100 years of Aus­tralian movies. The ex­hi­bi­tion will fea­ture im­agery of beloved Aus­tralian ac­tors and iconic films, from clas­sics such as Pic­nic at Hang­ing Rock, The Dress­maker, My Bril­liant

Ca­reer and The Adventures of Priscilla,

Queen of the Desert, as well as orig­i­nal cos­tumes, rare film posters, and stun­ning

1930s’ scrap­books of as­pir­ing ac­tors.

There will also be a smaller self-in­stall ex­hi­bi­tion for re­gional and re­mote com­mu­ni­ties, called Starstruck: On

Lo­ca­tion. Starstruck: Aus­tralian Movie
