COLLECTORS/COLLECTIONS: WAIKERIE FILMS was a 3 year project that focused on the preservation and presentation of 8mm films made by Waikerie residents between the 1950’s and 60’s. These films form an integral part in recording the town’s cultural history as well as highlighting a period of time when the Waikerie Film club was actively making short artistic films in the area.

Concept and lead artists: Nadia Cusimano and Paul Gazzola in creative partnership with the Waikerie District Historical Society, The Waikerie Film Preservation Group and OSCA.

This booklet contains images and stories about the project plus a collection of over 70 films.
