  1. Sterling as is the work of the Archive, it works within federal government processes and funding. That is good (status, continuity, money) but dangerous (dependent on political whim and budget priorities). Also, located in Canberra where frankly few film activities, companies, families or fans are to hear the news in general or contribute leads to lost films in particular. How many of Dial M’s listeners, for example, would receive the NFSA newsletter — and they are keen filmists. If you think the Archive’s work matters, you should brave the Canberra cold and keep in touch. Go to the extensive online pages via a google on Lost Films, for example.
