Ausfilm Week Los Angeles 2017

The annual Ausfilm Week launched in Los Angeles on Sunday 15th October through to Friday 20th October. The purpose of this week is to connect the Australian federal and state government and Ausfilm's membership of screen businesses to studios and executives from the Los Angeles film and television industry.

Ausfilm led its annual delegation of film and television businesses and Australian government representatives to Los Angeles for its 9th annual Ausfilm Week (15 – 20 October) to ensure Australia continues to be considered for international productions shooting outside of the US. Ausfilm had its biggest business delegation on record in 2017, featuring 19 film industry businesses and six federal and state government agencies and 38 Australian representatives attending the week of events.

Ausfilm Week connects the Australian film and television industry to the US production community and showcases Australia as one of the world’s best filming locations and destinations for post-production and visual effects.

This year Ausfilm Week featured its inaugural Innovation Series with Melbourne owned and based UAV cinematography company, Xm2 Media, launching its ground-breaking Sierra 70 kilo drone camera. Every two months Xm2 launch a “first in the world” UAV product such as multi-headed camera UAVs or LIDAR and photogrammetry for VFX departments. Xm2 Media have worked on Aquaman, Thor: Ragnarok, Pirates of the Caribbean: Deadmen Tell No Tales; and currently working in the USA on Westworld season 2.
