Taking the Film Archive to Invercargill
Yes! We are taking the Film Archive to Invercargill
Our most southern point of access...
In June the Film Archive was delighted to welcome two new partner institutions onto our medianet network - both based in Invercargill.
The Southern Institute of Technology provides a wide range of courses for zero fees. Medianet is available at the ‘Downtown’ Campus and readily accessible for students studying arts & digital media. Content will be tailored to meet the needs of teaching staff and hopefully we will also get a few new deposits from our next ‘up-and-coming’ New Zealand filmmakers. So watch this space.
Medianet is also now available at the Invercargill Library on Dee Street. Members of the public can browse the collection of over 800 videos including NZ documentaries, feature films, short films, television advertising and a fair sprinkling of historic films from south of the Clutha. The entire Archive catalogue of over 110,000 films can be searched, and we always welcome requests for titles to be added to the collection onsite. Medianet can be accessed on the first floor computers - just look for the icon on the desktop, or ask a librarian.
We will return to Invercargill to officially launch medianet later this year, so let us know if you’d like to be on our invite list - firstname.lastname@example.org
