The National Film and Sound Archive is the national audiovisual archive, playing a key role in documenting and interpreting the Australian experience and actively contributing to the development of Australia's audiovisual industry.

We collect, store, preserve and make available screen and sound material relevant to Australia's culture. Through our skills and services we complement documentary heritage collections. We are leaders in the preservation, presentation and development of screen and sound culture in Australia. With a headquarters building containing purpose-built technical facilities, the Archive continues to both build on its existing achievements and grow as a vital national cultural institution.
