Noosa, jewel of the Sunshine Coast and one of Australia’s premier holiday destinations, will play host to leading local, national and international filmmakers when it stages the Noosa International Film Festival (NIFF) in November.
The Noosa International Film Festival is Australia’s newest film festival and is a celebration of great films, and the art of making them.

Among the highlights of the Festival will be a series of short film competitions, workshops, masterclasses and Q&A forums offering a unique opportunity for would-be filmmakers to learn about, and become involved in, the craft of making films.
An integral part of the Festival program is the Noosa Integrated Catchment Association endorsed Ecoflicks – short films that highlight the importance of living in a biosphere and celebrate local actions that care for the environment.
In all, there will be three short film competitions being promoted as part of the program: the NIFF Open category (open to anyone, from anywhere of any genre); the Ecoflicks Open category (open to all-comers); and an Ecoflicks Youth category, aimed at youth in and around Noosa.
The Festival showcases new release films, with some of these films being screened in Australia for the first time. Heading the list of film categories will be World Cinema – “art-house” films which are likely to be the biggest attraction for cinephiles – which will be shown in the two largest cinemas at the BCC complex at Noosa Junction.
Screening venues include BCC cinema complex in Noosa Junction, The J Theatre in Noosa, Eumundi School of Arts Hall, and the Majestic Theatre in Pomona.
