The National Audiovisual Institute
The National Audiovisual Institute (NInA) is a modern cultural institution that has been focusing on digitalization, making available and promoting Polish audiovisual heritage for a decade already. The statute mission of NInA is to collect, archive, reconstruct and make available the most valuable expressions of film, music and theatre culture.
NInA acts on the Internet and beyond. Its constantly growing resources are published on the Internet. Through the Ninateka service (www.ninateka.pl) it makes available over 6 400 audio and video materials concerning culture. Recently all the resources archived by NInA, around 15 000 materials, can be viewed in the stationary NInA Archives in the new seat of the Institute.
