ACTION! Film and War Films

The videos on this page are excerpts of films that are featured in the Memorial’s exhibition Action! Film and War. In the physical exhibition you can access them through QR codes printed on the associated text panels.

The footage was shot by notable cinematographers or filmed using cameras that are on display in the exhibition and shows the remarkable sort of imagery filmed by Australians in wartime.
