New Reconciliation Film Club Titles for 2024

Reconciliation Film Club is a partnership between Reconciliation Australia, SBS and NITV.

The Reconciliation Film Club website hosts downloadable screening kits, discussion guides and features articles and ideas to support a successful event.

Hosting a screening in your organisation or community is an opportunity to bring people together to develop a deeper understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s perspectives and histories, ignite conversation and spark change.

It’s also a great platform to engage staff more actively in your organisation’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).

New in 2024

Five new documentaries have been added to the Reconciliation Film Club catalogue in time for National Reconciliation Week:

  • Audrey Napanangka, directed by Penelope McDonald
  • Larapinta by Gary Hamaguchi
  • Rebel With A Cause, which celebrates four First Nations trailblazers
  • You Can Go Now, a profile of artist Richard Bell by Larissa Behrendt
  • Living Black episode: Never Meant To Happen, about the road to Voice Referendum. 

These new titles make up the 20-plus films and series available in the Reconciliation Film Club in 2024. Other titles include:

  • Araatika! Rise Up
  • Occupation: Native
  • Incarceration Nation
  • Off Country
  • Kutcha’s Koorioke.

Why not organise a screening during National Reconciliation Week? Now more than ever, it is important to stay engaged, stay informed, and keep learning about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stories and culture. 

These compelling documentaries address issues such as cultural heritage, national identity, history, justice and equality.
