CinefestOZ Albany has launched and will continue until May 1, 2022, allowing Great Southern film lovers to experience and celebrate the best in Australian film. The expanded four-day event is being supported with Lotterywest funding through Screenwest.
This year, the festival will host the Albany premiere screenings of three feature films supported by Screenwest - 'How To Please A Woman' (pictured), 'Stage Changers' and 'I Met A Girl'.
The festival, which debuted in Albany last year, will provide film screenings, an Industry Program, free community screenings, a short film set featuring Western Australian shorts, and IndigifestOZ films over 4 days. The Gala Night event on Saturday will feature four Indigenous short films, including Karla Hart's film 'Tooly'. The first free Albany community day, Kinjarling Koort, will feature Indigenous films, filmmakers, music and community-based activities.
Founded in 2008, the CinefestOZ festival is held annually in August in Busselton, Margaret River and Bunbury, and has become one of WA's premier film festivals. CinefestOZ took out gold in the Festival and Events category of the 2021 Perth Airport WA Tourism Awards, silver at the 2022 Qantas Australian Tourism Awards, and is now member of the WA Qantas Tourism Awards Hall of Fame.
