Being Australian the film
Your stories in moving pictures
A cinematic art-documentary, based on your stories, bound together by a special original orchestral arrangement of Marie Cowan’s Waltzing Matilda and other themes.
Contemporary and authentic, moving and entertaining, the imagery of the film will mirror people's experiences recorded here on Being Australian.
From simple and memorable moments to the extraordinary behind the ordinary of the Australian 'everyday', Being Australian is about you. It's about us all and our time here.
With sensitivity and respect the film will deliver an intimate, revelatory first-person look through the eyes of thousands of people sharing their stories.
More than just 'documentary', the film will become a deeply personal diary - snatches of life threaded together by an evocative and moving soundtrack composed especially for Being Australian.
Through this film you have the opportunity to leave your mark for future generations, which is why Being Australian says, "Everyone matters!"
Get involved. It's free, quick and easy.
