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.

Published January 2, 2019, with approximately 100 entries.
Updated January 16, 2019 with approximately 10 entries, making a total of approx. 110 entries.
Updated July 2, 2019 with approximately 15 entries (those designated NEW), making a total of approx, 125 entries.

I say "approximately" because some entries disappear from the web. Since creating this page, the following have been deleted from their web locations: A Sketch on Abigayl’s Belly (David Perry, 1968, 2 mins), and Exit Wounds (Kim Miles, 2018, 21 mins). I am keeping an eye on them, in case they come back! Teenage Babylon (Graeme Wood, 1989, 14 mins) was also deleted, but because it's a cult classic, someone else uploaded it, in a different spot.
