The National Film and Sound Archive’s groundbreaking AUSTRALIANS & HOLLYWOOD exhibition will remain on show throughout 2023 following its successful launch in Canberra earlier this year.
The blockbuster exhibition, which celebrates Australia’s contemporary cinematic, acting and filmmaking success, opened in January and its extended run will give Canberra and national audiences an expanded opportunity to explore it.
”Australians & Hollywood makes an enormous contribution to the narrative of Australian film and filmmakers,” said the NFSA’s CEO Patrick McIntyre. “The feedback from audiences has been terrific, but COVID prevented many Canberrans from visiting and we want as many people as possible to enjoy this extraordinary exhibition. Extending it from July will also give national audiences a chance to add it to their Canberra itineraries now that travel is opening up around Australia.”
Australians & Hollywood is the NFSA’s first original exhibition in more than two decades and was two years in the making. Running exclusively in Canberra, it features previously-undisplayed costumes, props, documents and footage from the NFSA collection, as well as prized loans from the private collections of some of Australia’s most celebrated actors, cinematographers and filmmakers.
From directors Baz Luhrmann, Rachel Perkins and Warwick Thornton to Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie, Australians & Hollywood explores the work and talent of some of Australia’s most celebrated film talent, while also showcasing the skill and ingenuity of the award-winning craftspeople who have made such an impact on the global screen industry.
Australians & Hollywood is on at the NFSA, McCoy Circuit, Acton from 10am-4pm daily with special extended hours on Fridays from 10am-8pm. Tickets are available to book or on entry.
