Priscilla in all-time top five

The movie that won the world’s heart, an award at Cannes, an Oscar and then went on to become Australia’s biggest ever stage musical has been voted one of Australia’s top five favourite films of all time.

The 1994 film The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert sits alongside camp favourite Muriel’s Wedding, The Castle, Lantana and Gallipoli in an online poll of the country’s favourite local flicks put together by the Australian Film Institute (AFI).

The film receiving the largest number of votes, and therefore Australia’s favourite film, will be announced at the 50th AFI Awards on December 6.

Australia Post will issue a series of commemorative stamps of the five films, featuring the poster artwork originally used to promote them, on November 3.
