Baz Luhrmann’s sensational debut is one of the most beloved Australian films of all time. Revisit the glittering Pan-Pacific Grand Prix Championship in newly restored 4K.
Thirty years after bringing the house down at Cannes and delighting audiences everywhere, this Australian classic returns in a sparkling 4K restoration. An irresistible combination of dance, romance and dead-set funny Aussie humour, Strictly sizzles from the moment rebellious young competitor Scott Hastings hits the polished floorboards. The film’s beautiful heart is Scott’s relationship with dance partner Fran, a wallflower who blossoms when their bold new moves send stuffy old ballroom dancing officials into a spin. With its larger-than-life side characters, gorgeous visuals and dazzling choreography, this is motion picture entertainment at its best. Love is in the air here, in every sight and every sound.

After its Cannes 2022 premiere, be among the first Australian film fans to experience in this painstaking National Film and Sound Archive restoration, overseen by Baz Luhrmann and producer Tristram Miall.



Presented by the National Film and Sound Archive’s digital restoration program – NFSA Restores – reviving our cinema icons.
Crosses Astaire and Rogers with Mickey and Judy and adds a dash of Spinal Tap.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
A remarkably confident debut for co-writer/director Baz Luhrmann… Strictly Ballroom is strictly entertainment and a credit to all concerned.
