One of Australia’s most celebrated and unique film festivals, CinfestOZ Albany, is on again later this month and it’s fair to say we’re just a little bit excited.
Running from April 27-30 within the stunning surrounds of historic Albany in our Great Southern Region, this year’s fest is screening 18 feature films and 10 short films from here and abroad, along with a brilliant program of events to go with it.
These include filmmaker In-Conversation events, a Gala red carpet night, free community days, dedicated Industry Program connecting local filmmakers national and international talent and the Cinesnaps school program talent, plus the must-see Kinjarling Koort – Noongar for ‘Albany Heart’.
Taking place on Saturday 29 April, it’s a celebration of Albany’s Menang community and its local filmmakers in the Albany Town Hall & Square, with special screenings of Making Waves and Bayonettes and Butterflies, followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.
Other notable films that will be screening include Blueback, based on Tim Winton’s beloved book; stunning surf doco Corners of the Earth: Kamchatka (pictured at the top of the article); and Indigenous documentaries The Last Daughter and You Can Go Now.
