The question remains, what makes a movie Australian? The Aussie-ness of a movie can be based on a few key factors, in our eyes. Firstly, if the director or filmmaker is Australian, that is something we can claim. Another factor influencing whether or not a movie is Aussie is if it is financed in Australia- if our valuable assets are going into creating a film, that makes it ours. Perhaps the greatest factor influencing whether a film can be claimed as an Aussie one is if it’s shot in Australia. Australia’s remarkable landscape is perhaps our greatest assets and the biggest source of our pride. If a film depicts our precious, unique homeland, we deserve some recognition.
