Celebrate over 10 years of CinefestOZ Film Festival this August with a jam-packed program of Australian and international cinema, sidebar events and spectacular galas.

CinefestOZ is Australia’s premier destination film festival focused on Australian and French film, and in 2018 will run from 22 – 26 August.

Attracting filmmakers, stars and visitors to Australia’s South West, the festival delivers a wide-ranging program of film related events and film industry forums in Bunbury, Busselton, Margaret River and surrounds.

Visitors can plan their itineraries to include red carpet film premieres, cosy sidebar short film selections, film related lunches, free community screenings and industry soirees.

The CinefestOZ Film Prize, at $100,000, is Australia’s richest and awarded to an outstanding Australian feature film at the festival. It will attract the highest calibre of Australian filmmakers and stars in the festival’s history.

Combine this with the spectacular natural beauty of the region, its wineries, restaurants, galleries and famed hospitality and you have a superb getaway. Take time to explore the film events on offer and Australia’s magnificent South West.

Tickets can be purchased to major events from mid-July, with the full program of events and screenings available through the festival website.

Early bird tickets go on sale July 6.
