Join the National Film and Sound Archive’s celebration of the world’s first golden age of feature film, in the state-of-the-art Arc Cinema.

In an age before Hollywood’s global domination, 1913 was the year when the dramatic feature film – and modern cinema as we know it – took shape in France, Italy and Scandinavia. It also marked the culmination of Australia’s first burst of local feature film production, which began in 1906 with the world’s first dramatic feature film, The Story of the Kelly Gang.

Soak up the NFSA’s art deco atmosphere when live music cine-concerts present some of the greatest of these pioneering films, alongside Australian cinema’s oldest surviving movies.
