Festival Day Sunday 23 August 2020

The watch period for festival films has now finished for 2020.

In 2020 our festival was 100% online (thanks to COVID-19).

  • Films are geoblocked for viewing within Australia only. If you are having problems, it may be because you are using a VPN or accessing the Internet via an overseas provider.
  • You can change the resolution of the video stream by clicking the symbol in the watch window and change from Auto to a lower setting if the video is not playing smoothly for you.
  • Avoid prime time (5-7pm) when Internet speeds tend to be slower.
