Australian films of
the first decade of the 20th century

The first day of the twentieth century saw Australia's six colonies become a federation of States, the Commonwealth of Australia, with official ceremony and attendant celebrations, and motion pictures were taken of these. Ensuing production of locally-taken films was initially on a small scale, but after the big exhibitors, such as Cosens Spencer, T. J. West, and J. D. Williams, became established and were showing large numbers of films from England, Europe, and the USA, the need for more local material was recognised.

Most Australian-made films in this period were actuality or "newsreel" items, showing important or attention-getting events of the day. Some state governments, and later the federal government, commissioned the production of films for propaganda purposes, specifically to show Australia's resources and opportunities for immigrants. By the end of the decade the newsreel had become established, and almost all the items from this time listed below are from newsreels.

For information on most of the fiction films of this period (and later) see the monumental work by Andrew Pike and Ross Cooper, Australian Film 1900–1977: A Guide to Feature Film Production.

For the first Australian motion pictures, from the last half-decade of the 19th century, see the earliest motion pictures filmed in Australia.

Motion pictures filmed in Australia in 1901 - 1910
