Kokoda Front Line! was a full-length edition of the Australian newsreel, Cinesound Review, produced by the Australian News & Information Bureau and Cinesound Productions Limited in 1942. It was one of four winners of the 15th Academy Awards for best documentary, and the first Australian film to win an Oscar. It was filmed by the Australian war photographer Damien Parer and directed by Ken G. Hall.
Damien Parer is often cited as one of Australia's early Academy Award winners, however the award was made to the director, Ken G. Hall.
Much of Parer's footage was used in a documentary made by a rival company, Movietone, The Road to Kokoda.
