After a lengthy hiatus (and my long journey into the depths of PhD despair!), The Far Paradise – your guide to Australian cinema in Britain, past and present – is now officially back in action.

From here on out, posts should hopefully be more frequent, more informative, and (occasionally) more in-depth. The Aussie film calendar is also undergoing a major revamp, with plans to gradually expand the archive to include release dates for Australian films in Britain stretching right back to the silent era.

Since you’re here now, why not follow the blog, and add The Far Paradise on Twitter and Facebook for all the latest news and information.
