The National Film and Sound Archive 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.

Watch a film at Arc cinema, attend special events in their Theatrette, or explore one of Canberra’s most beautiful Art Deco buildings.

The NFSA also hosts numerous events throughout the year that extend from screenings and talks, to exhibitions and music gatherings.
