A presentation on the pioneering women film-makers of our National film Unit will acknowledge the World Audiovisual Heritage Day which was initiated by UNESCO to raise of awareness of the significance and preservation of recorded sound and audiovisual documents.

Pioneering women film-makers:
The National Film Unit holds an important place in our audiovisual history. NFU productions were a major source of news and information for New Zealanders from the 1940s to 1980s, and its output and influence helped shape New Zealand’s emerging film and television industries.

As part of Suffrage 125 celebrations, and to mark World Audiovisual Heritage Day, Archivist Katherine C’Ailceta will profile some of the pioneering women film-makers of the NFU and present some of their works.

About the speaker:
