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.
