South Australia has a rich moving image history.The State Library's collections include home movies by South Australians dating back to the 1930s, silent films, documentary material, and feature films and television productions made in South Australia and by South Australians who have made careers throughout the world.

The Library is developing a large collection of unpublished film, which seeks to document the history of our state through depictions of family life, business, sporting and cultural events such as the Christmas Pageant, regional development, farming and agriculture. Films are acquired by donation, and range from family home movies found in the garage, to large collections bequeathed to the Library by professional film makers.
