' What is the Reel Australia?' check out our inspiring short films and vote for the real Australia!

My name is Calzak, and like many of Australia's residents I was born overseas.

There is no question that Australia has a lot to offer, its beautiful landscape, amazing food, world class galleries and theaters, its brilliant nightlife, local musicians, Its beer and of course the people to share it all with.

But non of these is what has struck me the most since I arrived 16 years ago.

So "What is the Reel Australia?" The world knows Australia, by one savings more than any other "G'day" and though most of us cringe at the sound of it, I believe there is reason to be proud of this.

    Congrats to all the finalists, OK so I know Calzak but that doesnt mean that I cant genuinely think that his vid is great. Just 1 problem I have tried on several occassions to vote but the system wont let me, it has been stuck on 30 votes for ages.
