Government will soon make Fiji’s historical archival footage accessible to all Fijians through a comprehensive restoration and digitization process.

PM Bainimarama said the National Archives of Fiji has in its storage, footage of irreplaceable history including Fiji’s colonial past, sporting achievements and cultural events.

“This is unique footage, many of which does not exist anywhere else in the world. Making this accessible will mark a milestone in the way our citizens remember our past,” PM Bainimarama said.

“It is an exciting project because for the first time we will see Fiji’s history unfold in film and DVD format,” PM Bainimarama said.
