The Digital Archive will showcase more than 50 years of student filmmaking in a publicly-accessible, ever-growing online collection of Australian film.
What is the archive?
The Film and Television Digital Archive is a living record of films produced by graduating students at the former Swinburne School of Film and Television (1966-1991) and at the Victorian College of the Arts (1992-), Australia's longest continuing film school.
Stay up to date
In 2016 we launch a sneak peak of 50 films from our vault to celebrate 50 years of student filmmaking.
The full public archive will be launched imminently – subscribe to our newsletter for updates and more information about film at the VCA.
