Brisbane Festival Program

Brisbane Festival of Australian Film Program

AACTA are thrilled to announce that we will be returning to Queensland with an annual program of screenings and events commencing with our Festival of Australian Film – For Your Consideration screenings program.

Complimentary to AFI | AACTA members, the Festival (formerly the Official Screenings) has been enjoyed by our members in Sydney and Melbourne for many years, but now Brisbane members will once again have the opportunity to see the full program of 35 feature films competing for the AACTA Awards, as well as the 5 nominated feature length documentaries and 8 nominated shorts on the big screen at Event Cinemas Brisbane City Myer Centre.

The five-week program will launch in Brisbane at Event Cinemas Brisbane City Myer Centre on Tuesday 29 August with a special preview of THE BUTTERFLY TREE. Filmed in Tamborine Mountain in Queensland, the film is Queensland-based writer-director Priscilla Cameron's feature film directorial debut and stars Ewen Leslie, Ed Oxenbould and Melissa George.
