The Barbican-hosted festival reaches sweet 16 in 2010. It aims to showcase the best from the silver screen Down Under from the past 12 months and runs from March 18 to 28.
Featuring a host of European premieres, the festival showcases feature films and documentaries. There’s chance to see the best short films from Flickerfest and another free screening of highlights from Tropfest – the world’s biggest short film festival. Even if you're not in London, don't panic, the festival generally tours the UK afterwards.
