Australian Focus Film Festival


The Australian Embassy of Rome and L’Isola del Cinema were delighted to present this year’s Australian Focus, two evenings of Australian cinema underneath the stars of Rome.

In June two films were screened: Goldstone, a compelling thriller in which an Aboriginal detective is swept up in an unexpected web of crime in the little town of Goldstone; Red Dog, a touching and true story of a dog who crossed most of the Australian continent to find his master.

Both films show fascinating, unique landscapes and tell unmistakeably Australian and yet universal stories.

Watch the Ambassador's 'speech' for the opening of Australian Focus - you may be surprised!
