Commercial arrangement to deliver a regular screening program in the NFSA’s Arc cinema

The National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA) is seeking expressions of interest from qualified parties to enter into a commercial arrangement with the NFSA, to develop and deliver a regular, dynamic screening program – or a range of programs – in the NFSA’s Arc cinema.

We want to hear from individuals or organisations who can demonstrate their ability and track record in developing and presenting screening programs and events – including but not limited to historic and archival films.

The programs must be aligned with the NFSA’s strategic objective to make the national audiovisual collection available to the widest possible cross-section of the Australian public. Content can be sourced from the NFSA collection (subject to the
availability of suitable elements) and, consistent with the NFSA Act (2008), programs can also include content that is not in the collection.

We seek an indication of the scope and range of programs you would consider delivering in the context of a commercial arrangement, and require you to provide the following information:

1. Introduction to the individual or organisation, outlining the nature and scale of current operations.
2. Key people in the organisation, their skills and experience.
3. Provide track record of achievements in the development and delivery of screening programs.
4. Indication of potential target audiences and demographic for screening programs.

The technical specifications of Arc cinema can be found on The Arc experience section of our website.

Any questions can be directed to General Manager, Collections on (02) 6248 2104.

Expressions of interest, including contact details and any supporting information, must be provided in writing – by email to procurement@nfsa.gov.au, or by mail to:

National Film and Sound Archive of Australia
GPO Box 2002, Canberra ACT 2601

The closing date for expressions of interest is 2pm, Thursday 19 February 2015.
