Historia

On 5 April 1984, the Minister for Home Affairs and Environment, the Hon Barry Cohen MP, announced the establishment of the National Film and Sound Archive (NFSA). Prior to gaining its independence, the NFSA had operated as part of the Commonwealth National Library. For further information, see http://timeline.nfsaa.com/

Our mission is to collect and preserve Australian film, recorded sound, broadcast, and their associated documents and artefacts, and to share and celebrate this collection with audiences worldwide.

The Executive is made up of the Chief Executive Officer, the General Manager, Collections Branch and the General Manager, Corporate and Business Affairs.

The NFSA Board is responsible for the overall performance of the NFSA, including setting the strategic direction.

Administración de registros y políticas de recolección

We exist to perform three vital functions:

  • Collect audiovisual works and associated documentation that reflect all aspects of Australian life and our diverse communities
  • Preserve the collection in accordance with international standards and working within our resources, to ensure permanent access
  • Share the collection so its stories form an ongoing part of the evolution of our culture.
