Darwin International Film Festival

14 September 2017 - 25 September 2017

The Darwin International Film Festival (or DIFF) is a unique film culture experience the likes of which is only found in Australia’s tropical north.

The Darwin International Film Festival is an annual program of curated film and screen workshops over 8 luscious Top End nights and days, including film screenings at Deckchair Cinema, plus new workshops/special events.

DIFF films are a special mix of comedy, documentary, drama, foreign language and Indigenous content films from Australia and the globe, none before screened in the Territory and Australian premieres.

The DIFF movies and workshops are carefully curated each year by the DIFF Committee (a sub-committee of the Darwin Film Society), including expert help from festival consultants and industry experts like Michael Sergi and Timothy Parish.

Each year DIFF aims to get bigger and better by bringing together movie illuminati and officiandos. 

DIFF screenings are primarily held at Deckchair Cinema, Darwin’s premier outdoor cinema and a quintessential Territory experience with waterfront views of Darwin Harbour – the ideal place to soak up the selection of alternative films from all over the world.
