Join us online as we screen material that the NFSA acquired in 2020 to reflect the Australian COVID-19 experience.

Plus an exclusive Q&A discussion session with special guests including Nat and Julia from Nat's What I Reckon, Lucy Durack and Joyce Maynge. 

Q: What do a foul-mouthed comedian, heart-warming romantic web series and a drag queen have in common?
A: Making content creatively and connecting people during a global pandemic!  

When Australians went into lockdowns across the country in 2020, many creators found ways to connect with others, keep boredom at bay and survive a world where 'WFH', 'iso-date', 'sanny' and 'zoombombing' became staples of our new language.

Over the last year, the NFSA has collected a diverse range of materials reflecting how Aussies created, shared and consumed audiovisual material whilst surviving the COVID-19 pandemic.

Across this collection, one unifying theme shines through: the power of creativity to connect, inspire and foster care.
