A WORLD premiere, entirely created and filmed in Cherbourg, has premiered today.

Ears for Us Mob is a 15-minute documentary about otitis media, an ear disease common in indigenous Australians.

The Cherbourg Aboriginal Multimedia Resource Association (CAMRA) made the documentary and project director Andrew Beckett is "over the moon" about the company's first film.

Mr Beckett wrote, directed and produced the film, with the help of assistant project manager Jeanette Brown.

"We're so proud and it will give us more opportunities in the future," he said.

"We've proven our worth and (shown) we have the equipment to produce (other films) in the future."

Mr Beckett said the film also meant more employment opportunities for young people.

"We hope to expand training programs so young people can help us with our future projects while being employed and getting paid," he said.

"With National Indigenous Television, there's opportunities there for us to get some national exposure.

"They're always looking for material in a community like ours and it's our responsibility to spread the word about what's going on here in the South Burnett."

Mr Beckett said CAMRA wasn't just confined to making documentaries.

"We hope to produce music videos for local artists.

"We will do everything and anything," Mr Beckett said.

"We've always had the vision to do this when we started (Us Mob) radio station."

Ears for Us Mob has premiered at the Ration Shed Museum.
