Cultural policies that promote film production and exchange in small island states face numerous challenges (including training, funding, and infrastructure). Yet, in the Pacific, Indigenous film-making is a key strategy for redressing reductive framing of the region during the colonial period (which continues today), and the last 20 years has seen a growing movement towards greater Pacific Island film production. In addition, the creative industries (including film) are currently being explored as an alternative development pathway although this has met with mixed response from governments in the region. In this changing context, and recognising the political importance of Indigenous film production, this paper analyses the strategies of film-makers and other non-state actors in developing a regional film sector across Oceania–strategies of connection that potentially bring filmmakers and audiences together across the great ocean.
