Rate Your Music: The Best Australian Films

During the 1970s the established film assistance programs and training institutions allowed national film-makers to attempt larger scale productions, and create films which led to international recognition, as well as a domestic increase in interest in film. Over 400 films were produced during the rise in interest and availability of financial assistance during the New Wave, which was more than the entire history of the country's cinematic output up until that point.
Films also often featured narratives of showcasing the harsh Australian wilderness, especially as seen in films like Walkabout (1971), Wake in Fright (1971), and Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975). The notably popular Mad Max (1979) series also expanded on these themes and paired them with Dystopian themes. Historical War stories of Australian soldiers and the battles they were involved in were also given international recognition through films such as Breaker Morant (1980) and Gallipoli (1981).
