Shining a Light: 50 Years of the AFI is a history of a cultural organisation (AFI/AACTA), an overview of the progress of the Australian film and television industries over the last fifty years, and an argument about the importance of screen culture to a successful production industry. The second edition (December, 2013) has been delivered as an iPad (and android) book. This has allowed the inclusion of more than 60 video clips from interviews conducted as part of the original research. The new edition also includes an additional chapter outlining the AFI’s initiative in instituting the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA), and an updated database of all the winners and nominees of AFI/AACTA Awards (1958-2013).
