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?
