The Digital Bibliography is a unique resource where students, teachers, researchers, filmmakers and members of the public can access a wide range of sources of information about Australian Indigenous Film and Television. The Indigenous Department of Screen Australia defines Indigenous film and television as screen projects with “Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Australians in key creative roles – at least as writer and director.” The Department’s Black List: Film and TV projects since 1970 with Indigenous Australians in key creative roles comprises more than 600 titles and provides a timeline of significant film and television projects and key events in the development of Indigenous filmmaking from 1970 to 2010.
