Since opening our doors as ACMI in 2002, we have been home to 63 exhibitions, hundreds of events and tens of thousands of film screenings, all while we continue to care for a vast collection of moving image material, numbering in excess of 250,000 items.

Below is just a selection of the stories celebrated in – and connected to – our new exhibition The Story of the Moving Image.

Please note that while we constantly continue to improve the descriptive data on our collection many of the entries were written decades ago and the language, gender and cultural representation may not align with contemporary views. No offence is intended and we welcome you letting us know where entries should be revised.
