Acclaimed Indigenous actor David Gulpilil has been honoured at the eighth annual Vision Splendid Outback Film Festival.
His lifetime contribution to Australian cinema is now cemented in history with a star on Hall of Fame in central west Queensland.
Mr Gulpilil's 50-year contribution to Australian cinema was celebrated on the main drag of Winton, Elderslie Street.
The Vision Splendid Outback Film Festival opened on Friday with the film My Name is Gulpilil.
It was there festival director Mark Melrose spoke of Mr Gulpilil's unwavering strength and presence. It added fuel to the voice of Indigenous Australians on the big screen, he said, and broke stereotypes across Australia's film industry.
"David Gulpilil inspired a whole generation of Indigenous talent - some who were able to see their community represented on the big screen for the first time and realise a career in cinema was attainable," Mr Melrose said.
"His star on Winton's Walk of Fame will pay respect to his 50-year career in Australia's film industry and enduring and powerful presence both on and off the screen.
"His latest film and intimate documentary, My Name is Gulpilil will also open this year's festival and give punters a glimpse into his incredible life."
Mr Gulpilil is the sixth star to be named in Winton's Walk of Fame and will join renowned actors Steve Le Marquand and Roy Billing, director Ivan Sen, film critic Margaret Pomeranz and former Winton mayor Butch Lenton.
For personal reasons, Koa Elder and good friend, Michael Mace accepted the star on his behalf.
