The National Film and Sound Archive (NFSA) is the national audiovisual archive, collecting, preserving and sharing the nation’s moving image and recorded sound heritage.
The NFSA has recently established australianscreen, an online promotional and educational resource providing worldwide access to information about the Australian film and television industry.
Australianscreen contains information about and excerpts from a wide selection of Australian feature films, corporate and government documentaries, television programs, newsreels, short films, animations, and home-movies produced over the last 100 years.
Roads and Maritime Services (replacing Roads and Traffic Authority) has provided a selection of films from its vast audiovisual library to the NFSA for inclusion on the australianscreen website. These films depict a range of significant projects, and are important items of our nation's technical, social and organisational film heritage.
