Dear Minister
On behalf of the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia Board, it gives me great pleasure to submit to you, for presentation to each House of Parliament, the Annual Report for the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA) covering the period 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2017.

The NFSA Board is responsible under section 46 of the Public Governance and Performance Accountability Act 2013 for the preparation and content of the Annual Report. I therefore present it in accordance with that legislation and section 41 of the National Film and Sound Archive Act 2008.

The report has also been prepared with regard to the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Amendment (Corporate Commonwealth Entity Annual Reporting) Rule 2014. 

In accordance with a resolution of the NFSA Board passed on 21 September 2017, we accept this report as 
being a fair and accurate representation of the organisation’s performance during the 2016–17 financial year. We commend the NFSA’s 2016–17 Annual Report to you.
