The Australian Cinematographers Society (ACS) is a not-for-profit company, limited by guarantee, that was formed in 1958 for the purpose of providing a forum for cinematographers to further develop their skills through mutual co-operation.

A cinematographer is a person with technical expertise who manipulates light to transfer visual information by the use of a camera into aesthetic moving images, onto motion picture film or electronic recording systems.
