Far South Film acknowledges the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first inhabitants of the nation and the traditional custodians of the lands where we live, create, learn and work and we pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.

The FAR SOUTH FILM FESTIVAL showcases stories told by regional filmmakers from Australia.

Our 2020 festival is ONLINE on Sunday 23 August 2020.

The festival is run by Far South Film Inc, an association of professional and emerging filmmakers and digital creatives living in South East regional NSW.

We invite our fellow filmmakers from regional and remote areas of Australia to submit short films under 30 minutes in length that reflect the people, environment and issues that matter to you to our festival.

Please note that in 2020, film screenings, Q&A sessions and awards will all be ONLINE due to COVID-19. No physical events will be taking place this year and there are no travel arrangements in place.

We look forward to watching the unique, the beautiful, the scary and the moving stories from filmmakers living outside the metropolitan areas of our island continent.The major prize for Best Film is $1000. Other prizes will be announced in the lead up to the closing date.
