Friends of the National Film and Sound Archive, Melbourne Branch

The Melbourne branch of the Friends was launched in November 2019, in collaboration with The Thornbury Picture House and the Liardet Community Centre in Port Melbourne.

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 restrictions currently in force, we have had to cancel our monthly Sundays with Friends events for the foreseeable future. However, we’ve successfully held a number of online presentations, and have a number more to come. 

Some of our successful events in 2020 were as follows:

July 2020:  Webinar presented by Daryl Dellora.  Online showing of his film about High Court Judge Michael Kirby, Don’t forget the justice, followed by Q&A between Daryl Dellora and Gwenda Davey (interlocutor).

August 2020:  Webinar presented by Daryl Dellora.  Online showing of his film about High Court Judge Lionel Murphy, Mr Neal is entitled to be an agitator, followed by Q&A between Daryl Dellora and Gwenda Davey.

September 2020: Zoom presentation by Dr Bryony Cosgrave entitled Silent Movies, Silent Man:  Andre de Beranger, about an Australian film star of the 1920s, virtually unknown in Australia.

Additional online events in 2020 include the following, mostly at dates to be arranged:

Presentation by NFSA CEO Jan Muller
   
Film Demonstrator with Q&A by Peter Krausz and Ray Edmondson.
   
Presentation by Bruce Watson about Fannie Cochrane Smith, with rare sound recordings of Tasmanian Indigenous songs and speech.
   
Film Lousy Little Sixpence with Q&A by Alec Morgan and Daryl Dellora, to be held Sunday 8th November at 2pm.


Details and invitations to events will be provided in due course.
