The repatriation of film showing Kiwis at the European and home fronts held in overseas archives and the building of a shared Anzac website to showcase sounds and images of the War.
Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision are undertaking a variety of activities during the First World War centennial period.
The two main projects involve the repatriation of film showing New Zealanders at the European and home fronts held in overseas archives, and the building of a shared website with the National Film and Sound Archive (Australia) to showcase sounds and images of the war. This website is now available at anzacsightsounds.org
The repatriation project is actively underway and newly-acquired films should be publicly available by mid-2014. The website was launched in time to commemorate the Gallipoli Centenary in April 2015. Both projects were made possible through funding from the Lottery Grants Board.
During the centenary period the Archive will also be undertaking a number of public screenings and events in Wellington and Auckland, as well as throughout the country. Activities will be updated as they are confirmed and more information is always available on our website ngataonga.org.nz.
