Celebrate CinefestOZ Film Festival this August with Australian and international cinema, sidebar events and spectacular galas.
Join us to experience CinefestOZ, Australia’s premier destination film festival, set against the stunning backdrop of Western Australia’s iconic South West region. The 2019 event will be held across the region from August 28 – September 1.
Film lovers, filmmakers and stars are drawn to the Margaret River region, from Busselton through to Augusta, to share in five days of immersive film experiences at the region’s cinemas, wineries, boutique breweries, small bars and galleries.
Leading the program this year will be the Film Prize finalists GO!, [email protected] film H is for Happiness, Hearts and Bones, Judy & Punch and [email protected] drama Measure for Measure competing for the coveted CinefestOZ $100,000 Film Prize. Filmmakers and attending talent from all Film Prize finalist films will walk the red carpet at Orana Cinemas ahead of each premiere and the following day will attend special In Conversation events, which allow audiences a deeper insight into the filmmaking teams’ creative process.
Award-winning Australian director Rachel Ward has accepted the role of Film Prize Jury Chair for this year’s event.
CinefestOZ CEO Malinda Nixon said the quality and diversity of the 2019 program underlined the enormous growth the festival had experienced in its 12 years and promised audiences another memorable five days in the South West.
“Anyone who picks up a program for this year’s CinefestOZ is going to be blown away by what’s on offer,” Nixon said. “We have an absolutely incredible selection of features, short films, documentaries, industry workshops and special events and audiences really will be spoilt for choice.
“We are so proud that each year, CinefestOZ continues to grow and provide not only a platform for audiences to experience premiere film screenings but for WA and Australian filmmakers to come together to champion the industry.
