The first ever festival held in early 2017, formerly called as North Brisbane Film Festival, was a success and organisers are expecting the same for this year. Both participants and audience have given good reviews about the previous festival.

“Although I was unable to attend the festival, a friend went along on my behalf and … said it was a joy to attend and it felt like stepping back in time to a friendly country event. He loved the festival night – the friendly folk taking the entry fee (a modest donation to the local Meals on Wheels), chatting about the festival with the enthusiastic organisers and some of the film makers, the volunteers taking drink orders and the aroma of the freshly popped (and yummy) popcorn. A good cross section of attendees watched the films which represented a diverse range of topics. This festival has all the ingredients for continued growth and success in future years” – Michael Barnett

“Thank you North Brisbane Film Festival for accepting our film. We’d also like to thank you for your marvellous communication and hope the festival gets bigger and better each year”. – Michael Rasso

NFF offers young and emerging filmmakers from all over Australia a platform where they can showcase their films, subsequently gain a following, and hopefully penetrate the mainstream film industry. The committee even welcomes film aspirants as young as high school students. Ultimately, the goal of NFF is to position Nundah as Australia’s local creative hub.

All films to be screened are family-friendly and rated PG+ or M. There are only three film categories:

  • Short documentary which should last a maximum of 15 minutes
  • Short Narrative which should last a maximum of 15 minutes
  • Music clips which should only last a maximum of four minutes

The festival will be held at Birch Carroll & Coyle Cinema in Toombul. Tickets can be purchased at $10 and it is highly advised to get them as early as now. Please click here.

All proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Rotary Club of Nundah to support its local, national, and international projects. The club takes pride in having members who are dedicated to community service, who are passionate about enriching the lives of others, and who have the vision to raise awareness about Nundah.  It welcomes new members and regularly meets at the Prince of Wales Hotel at 1154 Sandgate Road.

NFF is also proudly sponsored by the Lord Mayor’s Suburban Initiative Fund and Cr Adam Allan, Councillor for Northgate Ward.
