Box Office Figures:

According to Urban Cinefile 'Amy' earned a total of $423,982. Supporting information points to 'Amy' being a disappointment at the Australian box office. The film also failed to place on the AFC's Top 100 box office Australian films and, number 100 - Fatty Finn (1980) earned $1,064,000 locally, double 'Amy's' takings. 'Amy's'low box office was also below David Parker's expectations of the film; "its mediocre box-office performance here was really tough for us .... We really felt that we were on a winner with this film. So things like these prizes reinforce that -but things like the Australian release don't." (Parker interviewed by Shaw, The Age, Tuesday 25 May 1999 edition.) World Wide Motion Pictures Corporation's official 'Amy' site regards 'Amy's' box office performance internationally as a success according to their publicity quote; "following unprecedented success at theatres and festivals around the world". This was the only information found discussing overseas earnings.
