FRAIM, celebrating and supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander video-makers working in remote parts of Australia.


FRAIM is a gathering of Indigenous video-makers from around remote Australia for over two-and-a-half days of workshops, peer to peer sharing, showcasing of work and discussions about issues specific to the Indigenous screen sector in remote and very remote areas of Australia. FRAIM specifically targets the needs of Indigenous screen practitioners who reside in geographically isolated areas and provides them with opportunities that are ordinarily not available to them.

In addition to targeted workshops, the FRAIM program also includes a film festival with two nights of public video screenings and the bi-annual ICTV Video Awards which will be broadcast live on ICTV Channel 601 and on-line direct from Alice Springs Cinema.


Registration to FRAIM as a participant in our training workshops is by invitation.

The four training workshops will support Indigenous media-makers and organisations who have contributed content to ICTV in the past two years. The workshops will also be open to non-Indigenous delegates, however numbers for these places will be limited and non-Indigenous delegates may need to attend with an Indigenous delegate.

If you wish to be invited to attend FRAIM’s workshops as a Workshop Participant, please contact us.

FRAIM workshops will run concurrently on Tuesday May 14 and Wednesday May 15, 2019.
Workshop presentations will be made to the full delegation on the final day of FRAIM, Thursday May 16. The workshop program covers a range of skill levels from emerging film-makers to established. Workshops have been developed according to the needs to the ICTV Contributor group and will cover topics such as, creating cultural videos, 3D stop-motion and 2D animation, inventive video making and using your equipment to its full potential.


Delegates are required to nominate their preferences for workshops at the time of registration. Workshops include four sessions over two days, and it is expected that delegates attend all four sessions of their nominated workshop.

The workshops will be held at the Desert Knowledge Precinct, 475 South Stuart Highway, Alice Springs.



A program of videos in-competition will be held at a grassed outdoor screening along the beautiful MacDonnell Ranges on Tuesday and Wednesday night (May 14 and 15). The program will also feature a Q&A session with Indigenous video-makers. The program will be available closer to the screening date.

All screenings are free, but registration is necessary.
