The National Film and Sound Archive (NFSA) has announced a winter program centered around female filmmakers, Aboriginal voices and a celebration of the 1969 moon landing.

The original costumes from hit film The Dressmaker are on display until 18 August, featuring a spectacular range of haute couture worn by the film’s stars, including Kate Winslett (pictured), Liam Hemsworth and Hugo Weaving.

A season of films featuring fantastic costumes in the NFSA’s Power Dressers season is to run from 26 July with Marion Boyce discussing her work on The Dressmaker and Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, over two nights in August.

In conjunction with the Sydney Film Festival, NFSA is celebrating Essential Australian Women Directors with the annual program curated by David Stratton.

To mark NAIDOC week, NFSA will extend its season of Carriberrie, a free immersive virtual reality film that celebrates Indigenous song and dance, now on until 21 July.

Finally, to mark the 50th anniversary of Neil Armstrong becoming the first person to walk on the moon, NFSA is presenting a moon landing weekend on 19/20 July with the documentary, Dark Side of the Moon, Damien Chazelle’s First Man and the hit Australian comedy, The Dish.

Other highlights of the winter program include the regular Vinyl Lounge and School Holidays: Kids’ Classics, inspired by The Wizard of Oz turning 80 this year.
