How hard is it to see alternative Australian film? Does one have to fluke upon it? Is searching through You Tube like being in a tip looking for some coins?

For what it's worth, on this page I embed a number of indie Australian films, for easy access by the viewer, you!

As the cliche goes enjoy!

Tip: because I highlight only one or two works from each filmmaker, you can most likely find more of their work by clicking further on the clip (into their channel, etc.)

Thanks to Gregory Pakis and Mike Retter for inspiring this page.


NOTE: PAGE TAKES A FEW MOMENTS TO LOAD, BECAUSE OF THE MANY EMBEDDED LINKS.
