This has nothing to do with automaketemplate. It uses normal TypoScript 
to define the file which it should use as a template.
In TS Ref you can find the details about the FILE object and it's .file

This means that the file is read from the path media/.... which should 
be relative to the website root (because it doesn't start with a slash '/')
As long as the path and the file are readable it can be used.

Maybe something is missing in the way you set up the PAGE object? 
automaketemplate "only" puts markers in your HTML template, but you 
still need to use that for normal template processing.
