The Australian Screen Archive

The Aus­tralian Nation­al Film and Sound Archive pro­vides free and world­wide access to over 1,000 film and tele­vi­sion titles – a trea­sury of down-under video 100 years in the mak­ing. In a part­ner­ship with the major net­works and oth­er learn­ing orga­ni­za­tions, the Archive has com­mis­sioned expert cura­tors to anno­tate the hold­ings, which pro­vides for a rich and con­tex­tu­al­ized experience—whether one is watch­ing unique home movies of Bal­lets Russ­es stars from the 1930s or Aus­tralian films about the sav­agery of World War I. Carve out a good chunk of time and enjoy explor­ing this free resource.

Note: This is the first post by Peter Kauf­man, who heads up Intel­li­gent Tele­vi­sion and shares our pas­sion for thought­ful media. Peter will be bring­ing you intel­li­gent media in the days, weeks, and months ahead. And we’ve also got some oth­er cool projects in mind. More on that lat­er. In the mean­time, keep an eye out for Peter.

    Hi Peter,
    It is very heart­en­ing that you will be bring­ing the pub­lic “Intel­li­gent media”, as that seems to be get­ting quite rare these days. For exam­ple, the pop­u­la­tion issue seems to be a taboo top­ic these days in the media, yet is the most impor­tant issue we could pos­si­bly be dis­cussing at this time. Do you plan to cov­er this issue in a fair and mean­ing­ful way? World sci­en­tists have agreed (The Union of Con­cerned Sci­en­tists) that it lies at the root of all of our major prob­lems. Many sci­en­tists esti­mate that a sus­tain­able world pop­u­la­tion would be 1–2 bil­lion, and we are now near­ing 7. Don’t you think that is worth dis­cussing?
