You're watching a movie and, suddenly, you spot a familiar location. It isn't just a place you've spied on-screen countless times before — it's somewhere you've been, because it's local. This mightn't happen as often for audiences in Australia as it must for viewers in Europe and the US (or even for viewers who've visited Europe and the US), but we all know the feeling of seeing one of our favourite haunts on the big screen. And, thanks to a hefty number of movies lately, Victorians should know this sensation well.

In recent years, flicks as varied as Crackerjack, Ali's Wedding and Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears have been shot locally. So have Romulus, My Father, The Dressmaker and Ride Like a Girl. And if you'd like to know more about them from the folks that made them happen, then you'll want to tune into the new online Victoria on Film series.

You won't be watching the movies, but rather hearing from the likes of Osamah Sami, Don Hany and Helana Sawires from Ali's Wedding; Essie Davis, Nathan Page and Isabella Yena from Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears; and Rachel Griffiths, Michelle Payne, Stevie Payne and Teresa Palmer from Ride Like a Girl. A new interview will hit the Victoria Together website every fortnight from 6.30pm on Saturday, September 26, with Shane Jacobson and Beverley Wang rotating hosting duties.

It all kicks off with with Mick Molloy and Judith Lucy Crackerjack, should you be in the mood for something light — which we all are this year.

And, as well as all of the above live-action films, delightful animation Mary and Max will also feature, via interviews with interviews Eric Bana and director Adam Elliot.

Victoria on Film kicks off at 6.30pm on Saturday, September 26, then runs fortnightly — watch along via the Victoria Together website.
