Backpacking Around Australian Cinema - Ozploitation and Beyond...

This list is an ongoing project of mine to keep track of my journey around Australian cinema; including both films that I have visited and those which I intend to track down in future.

As a film obsessive with a leaning towards cult and independent cinema it is inevitable that Ozploitation films feature heavily, but I will watch anything and am always on the look out for new recommendations. My primary rule is that these films must have some quintessentially Australian quality and not simply be a product of Australian investment or creative input (i.e. no 'Happy Feet' or 'Moulin Rouge' despite them being among the most successful Australian films of all time by box office).
