The quirky, low-budget Aussie film that became a global smash is now 25 years old.

Strictly Ballroom, released in August 1992, set Baz Luhrmann on a path to worldwide success, and launched the careers of Paul Mercurio and Tara Morice.

Consistently ranked in the top ten among Australia films at the all-time box office, the film is now considered an Australian classic. 

We celebrate its phenomenal success by sharing exclusive interviews, original costume sketches, posters and production documents from our collection.
