Here is a recent advertisment:


Greetings!

We hope you’ll be interested to hear of the recent formation of a Melbourne chapter of the Friends of the National Film and Sound Archive (FNFSA). This group has been founded with the support of Jan Muller, CEO of the NFSA, and operates under the aegis of the main Friends organisation in Canberra.  

The NFSA is Australia’s premier audiovisual archive and a place of engagement with Australian audiovisual production, past and present. It’s the custodian of over 3 million items that it not only collects, but also preserves for future generations. Learn more at https://www.nfsa.gov.au/

The Friends of the National Film and Sound Archive (FNFSA) is a group of volunteer advocates working to further the aims of the Archive and to encourage links between the Archive, the film and sound communities and the general community. Learn more at http://www.archivefriends.org.au/

The Melbourne Friends will be launched on Sunday afternoon, 24 November 2019, by Jan Muller, CEO of the NFSA, and Dr Ray Edmondson OAM, President of the FNFSA. The launch will take place at the Thornbury Picture House, 802 High Street Thornbury, with a screening of the Archive’s recently restored version of My Brilliant Career (1979), followed by refreshments. 

The Melbourne chapter plans to host monthly events called ‘Sundays with Friends’, all of them on Sunday afternoons. Quarterly film screenings, with introductory talks, will take place at the Thornbury Picture House. In the intervening months we will host presentations by people involved in the NSFA's activities, by local film, television, music and radio historians, and by people involved in these industries in Australia. These gatherings will be a must for fans of our audiovisual history.

We’d be very grateful if you would let your students know about this venture.  You might like to circulate and/or display the attached advertisement. NB: Full financial members of the FNFSA are entitled to concessions at the Thornbury Picture House.

May we add your name to our general email list, so that you receive notification of our future activities? To give permission for this, and if you would like to become a full financial member, please contact Teresa Pitt at teresa.pitt@outlook.com

Best wishes

Dr Gwenda Beed Davey AM, Chair, Melbourne Friends of NFSA
