Our collection contains over 200,000 moving image works.
Explore film, tape and disc material, time-based media art, games, television, digital culture and ephemera including books, journals, publicity photographs, film posters and press kits.
We provide access to the collection for in-depth research and have completed successful collaborative research projects with a number of universities, organisations and professional researchers.
Some of these research projects have covered subjects as diverse as:
- Chinese feature films
- Indigenous filmmakers
- 1980s Australian videogames
- Glass blowing
- Urban planning
- Representations of women in documentaries about Papua New Guinea
- 16mm Italian films
- School-building architecture
If you would like to access our collection for a particular project please make a request to the Collections team.
This project aims to create a playable history of Australasian video games for industry, community and research purposes, by building on existing research into the history of Beam Software and their games from the 1980s.
For those prevented by distance from engaging with our programs we took teams on the road to work with local communities and inspire regional storytelling through the moving image.
