Annual Movie Convention (AIMC)

Hosted annually by NACO (National Association of Cinema Operators-Australasia), the AIMC remains the only event on the Australian film industry calendar to provide opportunities to network with local and international colleagues from Cinema Exhibition, Distribution, Production, and Technology & Cinema Equipment Suppliers under one roof.  Attracting delegates from Australia, New Zealand, Asia, the US and Europe, AIMC provides an invaluable opportunity to preview upcoming product from major and independent studios; learn about local and international trends from guest presenters; discuss latest technologies and cinema fit-outs with trade exhibitors; and network with colleagues and senior industry executives.

  • Invest in the future of your business
  • Preview major upcoming studio and independent feature films
  • Watch local and international product reels of upcoming releases
  • Join stars, filmmakers and industry leaders at gala dinners and functions
  • Learn about cinema innovations and products at the AIMC trade show
  • Hear about current issues facing our industry
  • Network with top industry executives

The AIMC is held on Queensland’s Gold Coast in October each year. AIMC 2019 will be held from October 20-23 – click here to register.

The MPEAQ has hosted the annual AIMC since 1945, and now continues the same successful tradition under the NACO banner.

Australian International

I invite you to join us for the 2019 AIMC, the 74th Movie Convention.

Thanks to all who completed our survey after last year’s Convention – delegates were overwhelmingly positive about seeing films in the environment we’re all invested in as industry players – the cinema.

We’re delighted that Event Cinemas Pacific Fair, in Broadbeach, Queensland, will again be our Convention hub for AIMC 2019, where we will host Distributor Product Presentations and Screenings, the Trade Show and our Guest Speaker Presentations this year. Our Networking hub will be the Delegate Bar at The Sofitel Broadbeach, our Accommodation Partner.

Our event team is planning an exciting convention to entertain, inform and inspire.

The convention is a unique event which offers something for everyone who works in the movie industry, from production through to exhibition. There is no better place to get up to speed on what product lies ahead; learn about new challenges and opportunities in our industry; network with colleagues and industry players and understand changing technologies that affect our business.

I urge you to participate in this year’s event so we can all work together to meet the challenges of the future.

This convention wouldn’t be possible without the extraordinary support we receive from the Distributors and Exhibitors, our Trade Show Partners and all our Sponsor Partners who continue to support us, and to each of you, my sincere thanks.

I look forward to seeing you at this year’s AIMC.

Terry Jackman AM
Chairman, AIMC
