Take a free trip down memory lane with this collection of entertaining short films from the collection of the National Film and Sound Archive. By popular demand the Archive presents a program of the best of the Gems featured at Big Screen festivals over the past four years. Many audience favourites are back, together with regional specialities from the jazz age to the groovy 1970s. In between enjoy some historic moments in Australia's history, re-live those dance crazes, singalong to favourite commercial jingles and marvel at glimpses of our cinema classics. There are plenty of moments you'll enjoy remembering and some you'd rather forget, but this program is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face, whatever your age.
