Screening loans

Theatrical screening loans

The NFSA offers loans to cinemas, festivals, institutions and eligible organisations that wish to screen titles from the NFSA collection.

Feature films, documentaries, shorts, cinema advertisements and other materials are available for theatrical screenings subject to approval from the rightsholder and NFSA conditions of use. Titles are primarily Australian and are available on 35mm and 16mm film, with limited titles on high quality Betacam video. Images for many titles are also available. Search the collection to find materials that have access copies.

Theatrical screenings generally refer to those screenings:

  • which are open to the public; and
  • for which admission is charged.
