Hi all. I know its short notice, but I have finally been able to get a copy of the movie "The way we live". It was one of the movies made by Film Australia and Im pretty sure it was the movie that was shown to my family in 1966, prior to us emmigrating to Australia. I have also arranged a viewing of "Film Australias Emmigration"
Its a DVD with a number of movies shot by Film Australia from the 1950's to 1960's.
Film Australia was the company that was commissioned by the Australian Government to produce films directly aimed at recruiting Migrants. I found the material in the National Film Archives of Australia. Im very excited to be viewing this material after so long. It will be screend in the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, near Federation Square, Melbourne on Tues 28th of Feb (Tuesday coming) at 1:30pm.
The material has had to be requested and sent from the National Archive to Melbourne and will have only one viewing.
Anyone wanting to see this material would be more than welcome. There is no charge involved at all. Again, sorry about the short notice, but I just got the email regarding the showing myself. They have to put on a projectionist as the movie is in 16mm film format.
Now that people are aware of the availabilty of the material, perhaps you might want to organise a screening for yourselfs at a later date if you cant make this one. PM me if you want to come and we can arrange a meeting point (probably Federation Square im Melbourne). Kindest Regards, Richard Hallford.
