Old Quad presents Discover the Digital Archive, an exclusive installation which offers unprecedented access to the VCA Film and Television Digital Archive. This Archive is the first of its kind within the University of Melbourne’s Cultural Collections, making it an evolving and vital time-capsule, which up until now has remained closed to the public.

Developed thanks to The Digital Archive Project, the installation brings together work from Film and Television students dating back to 1966, including around 500 celluloid films and more than 1,200 magnetic. The Archive in its entirety is only available at Old Quad during this bespoke exhibition, making this experience a once-off opportunity for engagement and research. Audiences may browse the collection at their leisure or peruse a special 'Old Quad' playlist curated by passionate University of Melbourne film students and featuring range of significant works from different eras and genres.
