National Film and Sound Archive of Australia

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Watch a film at Arc cinema; enjoy our latest exhibition; take a self guided tour of our Art Deco building, or just relax in the courtyard with coffee, cakes and snacks from Biginelli’s Espresso.

There are School Holidays movie programs for kids and other special events such the monthly Vinyl Lounge and Ghost Tour.

The NFSA is Australia’s ‘living’ archive – the custodian of over 2.8 million items that we not only collect, but preserve for future generations and share in many diverse ways. The website contains hundreds of hours of content for you to explore, available in online exhibitions and curated collections.

Stay up-to-date with all NFSA collection updates and events on the website.
