Why watch on Beamafilm?

In a time where social fragmentation is on the rise and mainstream media is dominated by the interests of corporations, Beamafilm brings independent stories to discerning digital audiences.

Not only does the growing collection of films help to change the way you see the world but it also showcases independent local voices in a digital landscape being overwhelmed by mainstream international content. More than a third of our documentaries and independent feature films are made by Australian and New Zealand filmmakers.
