This stamp issue celebrates Australia's favourite local films, as voted for in a competition jointly organised by Australia Post and the Australian Film Institute (AFI). This is the first time that an Australian stamp issue has been produced based on the voting preferences of the Australian public.
The five films are:
The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
The overall favourite Australian film will be announced in December 2008 at the AFI awards, and will feature in a special embellished sheetlet of self-adhesive stamps (10 x 55c).
