The State Film Centre, established 1951, supplied documentary films throughout Victoria, with particular emphasis on servicing schools. The State Film Theatre and Information Library were other major functions of the Centre.

The Cinemedia Corporation was established by the Cinemedia Corporation Act 1997 (No.2). The purposes of the Act were to:

repeal the Film Victoria Act 1981 and the State Film Centre of Victoria Council Act 1983.

Section 35 of the Act states that Cinemedia is the successor agency in law to VA 2325 State Film Centre.

Two of the functions of the Corporation are:

to develop and maintain a collection of films, sound recordings and multimedia content; and

to promote public education and discourse with reference to films and multimedia content.
