SAFC launches film and TV library to celebrate South Australian-made content

The South Australian Film Corporation (SAFC) has made South Australian content available for all Australians via a new online library.

The announcement:

Audiences can now more easily discover and enjoy South Australian made film and TV productions from the comfort of their living room thanks to a handy new online library launched by the South Australian Film Corporation (SAFC).

The new SAFC SA Made Showcase features SA shot and produced feature film, television, multi-media and documentary productions from the SAFC’s catalogue stretching back nearly 50 years, all listed with links to streaming services for audiences to conveniently watch on demand.

Click the “Available to watch now” button to search for on-demand SAFC supported films and shows from 1975 to today, from Jack Thompson’s iconic Sunday Too Far Away, the SAFC’s first ever feature film production, to Storm Boy and Breaker Morant, Scott Hicks’ Academy Award winning Shine, Jane Campion’s Holy Smoke, to family favourite Red Dog.

Recent hits and modern classics featured include box office hit Top End Wedding, the ground-breaking 52 Tuesdays, international thriller Hotel Mumbai, sci-fi thriller I Am Mother, multi-award winner Sweet Country and the iconic and terrifying The Babadook.

Rediscover and stream great TV series and mini-series such as 1980s Bryan Brown classic The Shiralee, Anzac Girls and McLeod’s Daughters, as well as recent hits Upright, The Hunting and the Cate Blanchett-led series Stateless.

Documentaries, like the life-changing journey in Taryn Brumfitt’s Embrace, short films and web series are all featured too, with more than 140 SA made productions in total available to watch on demand right now.

And keep an eye out for the SAFC’s featured Showcase collections, starting with our anthology of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander made productions, specially compiled to celebrate 2020 National Reconciliation Week (27 May to 3 June).

Minister for Innovation and Skills David Pisoni said the Showcase was a great way for all South Australians to support the local screen industry.

“With more and more of us turning to streaming entertainment, there’s never been a better time to support the South Australian screen industry. Now with this great initiative you can more easily discover and choose SA made films, TV shows, documentaries and more, and support local filmmakers and producers from the comfort of your own sofa.”

South Australian Film Corporation CEO Kate Croser said the Showcase was another way the SAFC was helping to promote and support South Australian screen creatives through the COVID-19 pandemic.

“With so many in the SA screen sector feeling the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important that we support them as much as we can, not only the SAFC but the wider community as well. The SAFC’s new Made in SA Showcase makes it easier for audiences to rent, buy and stream SA made productions and directly support local screen creatives’ work in a meaningful way.”
