Welcome to the Northern Territory Branch of the ACS

The Northern Territory branch of the ACS was formed in September 2005 and was inspired and driven by founding member David Curl who became our first President. David Curl is a world-renowned nature and wildlife cinematographer whose involvement in the Northern Territory film industry has spanned almost a quarter of a century.

Along with other founding members such as Allan Collins ACS the branch grew out of an industry, which survives in a landmass representing one fifth of Australia, with a population of just over 200,000.
