Byron Bay Film Festival

The Byron Bay Film Festival (BBFF) will take place from 12-21 October 2018.
 
AACTA Awards accredited BBFF is a platform for outstanding independent film talent, showcasing a uniquely rich and diverse program of entertaining, inspiring and thought provoking films.
 
Launching in 2005, the Byron Bay Film Festival has established a reputation for showcasing a range of films with an emphasis on content that seeks to raise social, cultural and environmental awareness. Locating the festival within Australia’s largest regional film hub, BBFF attracts industry folk, artists, film buffs, local residents and tourists with a program that caters to these different audiences, offering Adults Only sessions, Family sessions and screening works that celebrate our local community, its values and environment.
 
The festival’s series of awards recognise excellence in film for such categories as features, shorts, documentary, music videos and animation and has been recognising fresh talent since its inception with the Young Australian Filmmaker of the Year Award which is judged by Film Critic Peter Thompson.
