Applying for the AFI Research Collection Fellowship


RMIT’s AFI Research Collection, in partnership with RMIT Culture, and the Screen and Sound Cultures Research Group at RMIT University, is pleased to announce the 2022 AFI Research Collection Research Fellowship.

The AFIRC invites proposals from individuals wishing to undertake research that utilises the Collection’s resources and promotes the AFIRC. We actively encourage applicants who are Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, from the CALD (Culturally and Linguistically Diverse) and/or DGSS (Diverse Genders, Sexes and Sexualities) communities and/or people living with disabilities, who meet the requirements of the Fellowship. The Fellowship is designed to showcase the unique holdings of the AFIRC, which include special collections, film stills, newspaper clippings and other significant artefacts from the Australian film and television industry.

The appointed Fellow will have access to the Collection under the guidance of the AFIRC staff. The Fellowship will provide a stipend of $5,000 (AUD) which includes travel costs if the recipient is not from Melbourne.

The Fellow will be required to participate in an accessible public event that engages on a topic related to their work. This could be in the form of an informal In-Conversation, or a panel style event and will be facilitated by RMIT Culture.

The AFI Research Collection Fellowship is open to individuals who have a demonstrated interest and experience in Australian screen culture and research through research outputs or AV outputs.

Applications close on 11:55 pm (AEST) Sunday 4 September 2022.
