1985-2003: GOFTA Awards
Guild of Film and TV Arts started administering the GOFTA awards in 1986. The results listed in this section come from the records held by AFTA (Academy of Film and Television Arts) which administered the Film Awards and Television Awards.
The Gofta itself was a two foot wide sculptured karaka sprey, designed by Terry Stringer.
The Film Awards and Television Awards used to be run as a joint ceremony until 2000 when they were split into two separate events.
