The Cinesound Movietone Australian Newsreel Collection held at the NFSA comprises 4,000 newsreels from 1929 to 1975.

It includes two competing cinema newsreels, Cinesound Review (1931–1970, 2,031 editions) and Fox Movietone News (1929–1970, 2,300 editions), as well as the Australian Movie Magazine (1970–1975, 1,386 editions).

The newsreels are generally between one and five segments each, with some extended 'special editions’ that are up to 10 minutes in length. They cover significant events in Australian social, cultural and political history.
