Formerly known as the AFI Awards, the AACTAs are Australia's answer to the Oscars and over the years have played an important role in Australia's film and television industry. 

The annual event sees movie makers and stars of the silver screen walk the red carpet, and now you have the opportunity to join them. Sydney will play host to the awards, with the star-studded red carpet and proceedings taking place at the Star Event Centre on Wednesday December 6.

This year, 35 feature films have been announced as eligible to be nominated for the awards. The nominees for Best Documentary Feature have already been announced. Members of the academy will take part in a two-stage voting process.
