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 next festival will be in August 2021.

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.

In 2020, film screenings, Q&A sessions and awards were ONLINE due to COVID-19. We hope to present physical screenings in regions when conditions are better! 

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. 


Vote for the People’s Choice Award by midnight Monday 24 August! All ticketholders will receive an email to reply to with their vote.
