The chapter examines two key strategies pursued by Australian Indigenous screen producers in pursuit of mainstream reception: “cross-cultural ‘cross-over’” features, and Indigenous-produced and themed primetime television drama and reality TV formats. It argues that while there is much to celebrate about the new wave of Indigenous screen production, there is also a critical imperative to closely analyse the different textual strategies employed by Indigenous screen creatives’ use of the mainstream as a space of cross-cultural exchange.
