Action! Film & War graphics

Action! Film and War

On now until 28 May 2023

All welcome

Museum of Tropical Queensland


A new touring exhibition from The Australian War Memorial

Action! Film & War explores the role of the moving image and cinema in documenting, supporting, promoting, reporting on and commemorating the Australian experience of war.

The exhibition reflects on film’s impact on those serving in many conflicts, and on their family and loved ones at home. Action! Film & War explores the stories of Australians who carried their cameras far from home, and showcases the power and importance of film to those who serve.

A wide range of technology, artworks, posters, paper records, photographs, oral histories – and, of course, moving pictures – tell the story.

Entry to Action! Film & War is included with museum admission. Admission to the museum is free for Annual Pass holders.
