National Film and Sound Archive Schools Program

The National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA), through its Education Program, offers opportunities for school students to access and engage with Australian screen culture. It celebrates the Australian film industry by bringing screenings of contemporary and classic Australian feature films, documentaries and short films to schools throughout regional Australia. These films cater specifically for both primary school and high school students. These screenings take place during school hours at local cinemas and the films screened are programmed in consultation with the local area schools.

ATOM is in partnership with the NFSA in offering this online booking system for these free school screening sessions. Click on the blue NFSA's Schools Screening Program link at the bottom of this page to see current available screenings and to book in your area now.

If your school is not able to access any screenings on offer, or they are booked out, please contact the National Film & Sound Archive School Screen Coordinator to discuss organising a screening of any Australian film in your local cinema or a free screening at your school if there is no cinema nearby.
