Byron Bay International Film Festival

10 days of cinematic bliss, set in beautiful Byron Bay!

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.
