Byron Bay Film Festival
BBFF is a platform for the world’s outstanding film talent, showcasing a uniquely rich and
diverse program of entertaining, inspiring and thought provoking films. We’re a festival that fuses
artistry, education and innovation, enhancing our world-view and collective social dialogue through the power and storytelling of film.
In 2015, BBFF provided Australians with the opportunity to see 110 brilliant films never
before screened on our shores including 25 World Premieres.
The Byron Bay International Film Festival provides a platform for independent filmmakers locally, nationally and from around the world.
Our festival encourages audiences to actively participate and interact, creating a friendly and inclusive experience for everyone.
Just a short stroll from some of the world’s most beautiful beaches our festival partners with a range of hotels and resorts in order to provide attendees with some fantastic accommodation deals. See the ‘Where to Stay’ section of our website for more details.
We offer a range of activities catering for all budgets. At BBFF you’ll find film introductions and Question & Answer sessions by attending filmmakers; free workshops and discussion panels run by top Industry professionals; networking functions; family‐friendly films; primary and secondary schools sessions; free showcases of experimental films; a balcony bar for the audience to mix with filmmakers. Two definite highlights of the Festival continue to be the Gala Red Carpet Opening and Closing Nights with catered parties where the stars aren’t just up in the sky.

Filmmaking has always sat at the cutting edge of innovation, design and exhibition. It is true collective endeavour which encapsulates a variety of team members & highlights their creative skills.
At this very special festival BBFF will activate discussion, investigation, incorporation and celebration of creative technology and, in particular, the rapidly growing immersive storytelling and creative opportunities created by Virtual and Augmented Reality.
We were built on the foundation where the organisers has the intention to preserve the unique spirit of Byron Bay within the festival itself – reflecting our local community by maintaining a strong emphasis on social and environmental issues, human rights, diversity and multiculturalism, creativity, indigenous culture, spirit, healing, connecting to nature, conscious thinking and positive living, music of every variety, marine preservation, colourful characters, humour and, of course being Byron Bay, surfing.
