The National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA) is seeking a First Nations Audiovisual Designer to produce a work using digital assets from the National Collection. Expressions of interest are open for the commissioned project, tentatively titled RE / Vision, which will feature as part of the UK / Australia season – the largest cultural exchange between Australia and the UK. The filmmaker will work closely with curatorial and technical experts from the NFSA, using the digital collection to produce an audiovisual product, which will aim to offer an authentic and contemporary take on Australia. The work will be based on the British / Australian theme of Who Are We Now? The work will have its international premiere in partnership with the British Film Institute (BFI) in Great Britain at the end of 2022, and nationally in Canberra at the NFSA Arc cinema. The complete piece will then be incorporated into the NFSA collection and made available to the public. Applications for the $ 25,000 commission are accepted until midnight October 17, 2021.
