Corrick Family Collection




The Corrick family were vaudeville-style entertainers who toured Australia, New Zealand, and the world in the early 1900s. They screened this collection of approximately 130 short films as part of their performance. The films offer a rare insight into the way Australians first experienced cinema. The collection includes silent novelty, comedy, chase and travel films, only a few of which were made by the Corricks themselves. The rest they purchased.

The NFSA does not usually hold the copyright for the works in its collection, so clearing the rights to use the material will be up to you.
