View newly digitised films online

Old films through a new lens – available anytime for free on YouTube.

Subscribe to the Tasmanian Archives Films YouTube channel with Libraries Tasmania to explore Tasmania’s history through a new lens.

Watch archived Tasmanian footage for free! Old films have new life thanks to Digitisation Services at Libraries Tasmania. A new film scanner allows higher quality scanning of archived films showing improved colour and much more detail than was possible before.

We are scanning both newly digitised films unseen by the public, and previously scanned films.

Newly scanned films are available every two weeks on the Tasmanian Archives Films YouTube channel. Subscribe to the channel to receive notifications about new films: Tasmanian Archives Films – YouTube
