'The Academy's role is to identify, award, promote and celebrate Australia's greatest achievements in film and television, particularly through the annual AACTA Awards...

'Australia has produced some of the best screen practitioners and productions in the world, and an important part of AACTA's role is to recognise this through the annual AACTA Awards.

Whilst 2011 will mark the inaugural AACTA Awards, this year's Awards are a continuum of the AFI Awards, which have proudly celebrated Australia's screen excellence and heritage since 1958.

'Building on this strong tradition, AACTA aims to elevate the status of Australian film and television nationally and internationally, thereby creating greater recognition and opportunities for our talented industry, and creating a stronger link between audiences and great Australian content.

'In addition to awarding screen excellence, AACTA also functions as the industry engagement arm of the AFI, and operates as the peak industry body for Australia's screen professionals.

'A not for profit, membership based organisation, AACTA comprises of practitioners from a cross-section of the screen industry including production, distribution, exhibition and television networks, as well as from each of the crafts.

'AACTA aims to attract a diverse range of members, spanning various age groups, levels of experience and cultural backgrounds.'
