AACTA Festival and Awards

Australia’s premier screen industry awards – the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) Awards – will return to the Gold Coast in 2025.

The Gold Coast will roll out the red carpet again over two nights for the AACTA Industry Awards and the AACTA Awards, with dates to be announced.

Fresh off its successful debut in 2024, the AACTA Festival will also return to celebrate Australia’s vibrant screen industry with a packed event schedule promising an immersive experience for everyone from industry professionals to film enthusiasts, school-leavers, families, and aspiring creatives. The AACTA Festival will present a dynamic array of panels, meet-and-greets, screenings and activities that are predominantly free to attend.

As one of the most prolific screen production centres in the Southern Hemisphere, the Gold Coast is the perfect home for the nation’s most prestigious screen celebration.

The AACTA Awards, presented by Foxtel Group, will be held in the heart of the international awards season alongside the Oscars and BAFTAs, platforming Australia’s talented creative community further on the world stage.

The AACTA Awards and AACTA Festival are proudly supported by Experience Gold Coast.
