The Buwindja Collection celebrates Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander trailblazers, icons and dreamers.

This 17-title showcase of superb feature films, documentaries, TV series, performances and animation continues the tradition of Indigenous storytelling and presents a snapshot of the history of Indigenous voices through screen.

Buwindja (Remember in the Dharawal language) was curated from the National Film and Sound Archive’s audiovisual collection to reflect this year’s NAIDOC Week theme: For Our Elders. The collection has been curated by Gillian Moody, Wodi Wodi woman, award-winning filmmaker and the NFSA’s Senior Manager, Indigenous Connections.

‘Buwindja represents an opportunity for Australians to reflect on the part they play in ensuring that the voice that our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders have fought for in the past and present continues to be heard,’ says Moody.

‘I curated it with the hope of inspiring audiences to reflect, imagine and act when they listen to and watch these stories.’
