Australian Cinema > about
This collection of Australasian film data began life online (not with this domain name) in 1998. I taught a unit called Australian Cinema at Murdoch University for ten years until I retired at the end of 2008. My approach to teaching - and writing the book which I used as my textbook, Ten Types of Australian Film - was through genre, films of different kinds, and this site contains pages of films based on type or subject-matter. The site was always intended to include films from countries in Oceania, especially New Zealand (hence Australasia), as our two industries have always been closely associated, but I left the "as" out of the domain name, as I thought I would get more hits without it. The site is a bit over 200Mb in size and gets of the order of 15,000 hits/month.
