Ozflix have teamed up with the National Film and Sound Archive to make available the countless classic Australian films NFSA have in their archives.
Previously these pieces of Australia’s cinematic history were only available to the public through screenings at ACMI in Melbourne, AFTRS in Sydney or the Arc Cinema in Canberra but will now be available for the first time nationwide, as well as internationally, for the general public, students and film lovers alike.
This is the first time most of these films will be available for streaming online and in many cases the first time they’ve been made available for a viewing audience in decades. Ozflix will be working with the NFSA and the Australian Film Future Foundation to restore some of these films and get them ready and in proper quality for online streaming so they can be enjoyed by all on the Ozflix platform.
Over the coming week’s Ozflix will be adding a selection of 15 films from the NFSA archive onto the Ozflix service including The Hero of the Dardanelles from 1915 (pictured above) and The Woman Suffers from 1918 and even the first ever Australian animated feature film Marco Polo Junior versus The Red Dragon.
In addition to these classics we will also be adding
- The Kid Stakes (1927)
- Diggers (1931)
- Diggers in Blighty (1933)
- Rangle River (1936)
- A Nation is Built (1938)
- Smith (1946)
- Always Another Dawn (1949)
- The Glenrowan Affair (1951)
- King of the Coral Sea (1954)
- Good Afternoon (1971)
