Caloundra Film Festival 2019
8 October 2019 - 29 October 2019
The Caloundra Film Festival began in 2013 with the aim of providing a platform for local, Australian and student filmmakers to show their work. The Festival also focuses on screening foreign language and art-house films in recognition of the growing cultural diversity of the Sunshine Coast region.
In 2017 the Festival commenced an initiative of monthly foreign language film screenings that have proven to be very popular. The Sunshine Coast is now able to experience quality films on the big screen that would traditionally only have been available in the major capital cities.
The Festival not only showcases the best of local and world cinema, we also aim to encourage the brightest and youngest of our film makers and provide pathways for them to fulfill their ambitions.
The Student Showcase highlights one of curatorial ambitions for the Festival. The event provides a non-competitive platform for media students in this region to showcase their works in front of their teachers and peers.
The Student Showcase continues to grow each year and the technology and quality of the work is inspiring.
