Adelaide Film Festival

5 October 2017 - 15 October 2017

Adelaide Film Festival (AFF) is a biennial eleven-day celebration and exploration of Australian and international screen culture with a unique program of screenings, forums and special events. 

The event has rapidly established itself as one of the boldest and most innovative in the country and has made a name for itself internationally as a platform for exciting new talent in the Australian industry. Originally presented biennially in March, since 2013 the Adelaide Film Festival has been presented in October.

The cornerstone of the Festival is the Adelaide Film Festival Investment Fund (AFFIF), funded through the South Australian Government. Since its inception in 2003, the AFFIF has helped to redefine the role of film festivals in Australia. As the first fund of its type in this country and a rarity worldwide, it has rapidly come to be recognized as a major force encouraging and showcasing new work in the Australian film industry.

The FOXTEL Movies Best International Feature Film Award celebrates the achievements of filmmakers from around the world. The Adelaide Film Festival was the first Australian film festival to offer a juried prize for best feature. For this award, AFF looks for distinctive voice, bold storytelling, creative risk-taking and overall fabulous films.
