Welcome to the Tasmanian Branch of the ACS

The Tasmanian branch is a small but active part of the ACS. It is also one of
the oldest branches, being formed back in February 1969. John Bale ACS
was our first elected President. John also happened to be the first ACS Milli
Award winner. Gert Kirchner ACS was another foundation member as was
John Wright.

Some of the more well known ACS Tasmanian members through the years
include David Brill, Peter Donnelly ACS, Warwick Curtis, Chris Morgan ACS,
and Paul Di Benedetto ACS. One of the first cinematographers ever inducted
into the ACS Hall of Fame was Tasmanian, Neil Davis, whose front line
coverage of the Vietnam War is world famous. We also have industry legend
Dick Marks OAM living in our state and working actively within our branch.
There are currently around 45 ACS members based in Tasmania and we hold
regular local events throughout the year, covering all areas of our craft.

ACS Tasmania works closely with local screen bodies such as Screen
Tasmania and Wide Angle Tasmania and helps to promote and develop skills
in emerging film-makers. We have a close association with the Victorian
branch of the ACS and hold combined annual state awards. Our branch
produces regular state based newsletters featuring articles from our local
members. These newsletters, plus information of future ACS Tasmania
events can be viewed here.
