Located in the Alfred Deakin Building, itself situated within Melbourne’s Federation Square, ACMI (formerly the Australian Centre for the Moving Image) opened in October 2002. As Australia’s museum of screen culture, ACMI celebrates the wonder and power of film, TV, video games, digital culture and art in four exhibition spaces, two cinemas, and multiple studio and function rooms.

Under the leadership of former CEO Katrina Sedgwick (2015-2022), ACMI underwent an expansive renewal beginning in mid 2019. Relaunching in early 2020 with revamped gallery spaces, upgraded studio facilities, and a new urban lounge and centrepiece staircase, ACMI has again cemented its place as one of Australia’s leading cultural institutions.
