ArtsHub (Australia): $5.5 Million for National Film and Sound Archive

ArtsHub: $5.5 Million for National Film and Sound Archive. This is Australia. “Perenially starved, fighting a tsunami of content, forced to choose between acquisition and accessibility, the NFSA is always starved for cash. Today Minister Fletcher made a funding announcement as part of a flurry of activity at the cultural end of his portfolio. The NFSA will receive $5.5 million over the next four years. Sounds like junk money but it is claimed to be enough to ‘achieve the digitisation of all audio and video magnetic tape by 2025’.”
