The National Film and Sound Archive have released an ominously worded statement on plans for staff cuts and the end of much loved programs at the conclusion of the winter program.
“We will be doing many things differently in the future so we are even more effective, innovative and relevant. This means some things will not continue in the way we have traditionally done them. Others will be integrated with other functions, or re-focused to take advantage of collaborations and the continually enhancing ability to share and feature our collection using technology,” said CEO Michael Loebenstein.
Michael denies the changes will make the NFSA “a mere storage facility”
The audience at “30 Years of Sixty Five Thousand” laughed at the delightful larrikin twinkle in the animal shapes and cheeky combinations, which bought a welcome injection of humour to this inspiring program, writes BILL STEPHENS.
