Nunga Screen is held annually during National Reconciliation Week, is a FREE short film showcase that shares and celebrates Aboriginal culture, stories and language, through the diversity of Indigenous film culture.

Formerly known as Black Screen, Nunga Screen features an entertaining program of independent films for all ages from emerging to the more established film-makers.  Inspiring docos, compelling dramas, quirky animation, contemporary to traditional storytelling – this film event is dedicated to bringing communities together to share in culture.

The curated program of short films is rolled out across South Australia to more than 20 regional venues and communities from cinemas to country halls to outdoor theatres.  A schools program is catered for with appropriate age and curricula day-time screenings.

Films are selected by a call-out for Expressions of Interest.  If you have a passion for film and are an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander film-maker, or have produced a film themed around reconciliation, then we would love to hear from you.  Look out for our EOI opportunity early each year.

Venues are invited to host a screening.  If you would like to host a screening, please do not hesitate to contact us. 

Inspired by the National Film & Sound Archive’s Black Screen program, Nunga (Aboriginal people of southern South Australia) Screen is presented by Country Arts SA and the ‘Give up Smokes for Good’ campaign from Drug and Alcohol Services of South Australia (DASSA), with support from the South Australian Film Corporation.

Reconciliation is a journey for all Australians.  Country Arts SA is proud to be a part of this journey.
