The AFI Research Collection, in partnership with the School of Media and Communication, and the Screen and Sound Cultures Research Group at RMIT University, is pleased to announce the 2019 AFIRC Research Fellowship.

The Fellowship will provide a stipend of up to $5000 (AUD).


The AFI Research Collection (AFIRC) at RMIT invites proposals from scholars around the world wishing to undertake research that utilises the Collection’s resources and promotes the AFIRC through a published outcome. The Fellowship is designed to showcase the unique holdings of the AFIRC, which include film stills, newspaper clippings and other significant artefacts from the Australian film and television industry and beyond.

The appointed Fellow will have access to the Collection under the guidance of the AFIRC staff.

The Fellowship will provide a stipend of up to $5000 (AUD).

The Fellow will be required to make a presentation of their work in progress to the School of Media and Communication towards the conclusion of their Fellowship.


The AFI Research Collection at RMIT is a specialist film and television industry research library open to the public. The Collection houses unique materials not available for film scholarship elsewhere and a range of books, journals, scripts, directories, publicity materials, production stills, reports, posters, and festival catalogues. It is particularly strong in screen history, theory, and Australian cinema.
