Byron Bay International Film Festival

The independent and creative spirit of filmmaking will be on display when the Byron Bay International Film Festival returns with a special edition hybrid festival providing audiences with the opportunity to experience select cinema screenings of a collection of outstanding features, documentaries, shorts, surf and local films. The festival will open on Friday with the NSW premiere of ‘Firestarter – The Story of Bangara’, which was this week named winner of the Feature Documentary Award at the Adelaide Film Festival. The opening night is already sold out but ‘Firestarter’ will screen on other dates during the festival. Those unable to make it to Byron will have the opportunity to virtually sit under a full moon for a screening next to Byron’s iconic lighthouse in a magical 360-degree experience as BBFF offers a unique take on presenting a virtual festival.

When: Friday October 23 to Sunday, November 1

Where: Palace Byron Bay and Byron Theatre
