NFSA Restores

NFSA Restores is an exciting program that seeks to digitise, restore and preserve Australian films so they can be seen in today’s digital cinemas.

Restored feature films include Shame (1988), Flirting (1990), The Year My Voice Broke (1987), Sons of Matthew (1949), Storm Boy (1976), The Odd Angry Shot (1979), Starstruck (1982), Bliss (1985), Howling III: The Marsupials (1987) and Proof (1991), as well as silent films The Cheaters (1929) and Three Days to Live (USA, 1924), all of which have been screened at various film festivals and events. Restored documentaries include Witches, Faggots, Dykes and Poofters (1980). Notably, Proof was restored with the public’s help through a successful crowdfunding campaign.

WARNING: this collection may contain names, images or voices of deceased Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
