Stop the Press: The NFSA Have Updated Their Cat and Dog Collection

Ok, so this may not be the biggest news of the week, but as we work through our favourite films of 2018 list (a long one, so apologies for the radio silence) we figured that a quick dive into the NFSA’s Vintage Cat and Dog collection is needed.

The NFSA is the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia and contains a ‘living’ archive of over 2.8 million items that help catalogue Australia’s history through media.

Sure, cats rule the internet, but did you know that cats have ruled all kinds of media throughout time? The recently updated NFSA collection has a wealth of cat videos and images, alongside a treasure trove of dog videos and images to peruse as you wait for your work day to wrap up.

Meanwhile, if you happen to be in Canberra this week and are nearby the NFSA, you can check out their school holiday Dogs Versus Cats event.

For those who aren’t in Canberra, fear not, you can still take a dive into Australian history via the website right here.
