Oz academy links up with G’Day USA

L.A. event to be used to boost kudocast

SYDNEY — The Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts, which launched in August, has announced it will work with G’Day USA, a Los Angeles event that promotes all things Australian, to boost its kudocast in January.

AACTA will use the G’Day USA black tie gala, held on Jan. 14 at the Grand Ballroom in L.A., as a platform to announce the noms for its AACTA International Awards, which will bow for the first time at the Sydney Opera House on Jan. 31. The international section of the kudos will honor the best practitioners worldwide in four categories: film, acting, writing and direction.

“Australia’s film and television industries play an important role in forming our cultural identity, in influencing tourism and in contributing to our export market, and we look forward to working alongside G’Day USA to raise the profile of our screen industry internationally,” said AACTA topper Damian Trewhella.

“The Australian public has thrown its support behind some great Australian stories this year, with ‘Red Dog’ catapulting its way into the top 10 highest grossing Australian films, and the popular documentary, ‘Mrs Carey’s Concert,’ making box office history as just two examples.”

AACTA, which replaced the Australian Film Institute, aims to lift the local industry’s international profile.
