If you’re planning a trip to Brisbane this year, you should consider checking out the Brisbane International Film Festival. This festival is held every year in Brisbane and has been running since 1992. You’ll find a variety of films from around the world during the festival. The Brisbane International Film Festival is a great way to discover new movies and expand your film-going horizons. If you have never been to Australia, you’ll definitely be enthralled by the diversity and quality of this festival.

The Brisbane International Film Festival has undergone several changes over the years. In 2013, the festival was cancelled and resurrected by Palace Cinemas. In 2017 and 2018, it was operated by the Gallery of Modern Art. But, as of 2018, it’s been run by Film Fantastic, which also organises the Gold Coast Film Festival. Film Fantastic won the three-year tender for the festival’s 2021-2023 programs.

The lineup for the Brisbane International Film Festival for 2021 is out, and it includes some notable films. Edgar Wright’s latest film, Oscar Isaac’s gambling drama Silvered Water, and Nicolas Cage’s OTT effort, Syria Self-Portrait, will all be on the festival’s program. In addition to acclaimed films from around the world, the festival also features new works by established directors. In addition to films by international and local filmmakers, the festival will showcase a diverse selection of Australian and international films.

Other highlights for this year’s festival include the Australian premiere of Nine Days2020, the latest feature from cult Japanese director Sion Sono. And Australian directors have also stepped up to the plate with films such as The Worst Person in the World and Compartment Number 6

In addition to Australian and international feature films, BIFF also features short films. Films up to 30 minutes can be submitted. Films should also be subtitled if they are in a language other than English. Some BIFF filmmakers have even joined the festivities as guests. They include Alice Foulcher, Gregory Erdstein, and Rosemary Blight, as well as other notable local and international media personalities.

The Brisbane International Film Festival has been in place since 1991 and focuses on films from Asia-Pacific countries. A unique aspect of the festival is the Fast Film Competition. Participants must produce a short film in just 50 days with a special ingredient. A film that achieves this feat is awarded the Fast Film Award named after the pioneers of the Queensland film industry, Charles Chauvel and Elsa Chauvel. The winner is then recognized in a Q&A session.

Filmmakers must own all rights to the film they want to enter. They must have permission to use the film and notify the festival if they don’t have these rights. If a film is selected, the filmmaker must submit it within two years or after the festival’s deadline of 14 April 2020. A filmmaker can enter more than one film for the Festival. Alternatively, they may only enter one film per category.

A documentary about the 1996 High Court decision in Wik vs Queensland highlights the Australian film industry’s commitment to promoting native title co-existence. The film will be followed by a free panel discussion featuring filmmakers Noel Pearson and Dean Gibson. A variety of filmmakers and audiences will also be able to attend free workshops in the filmmaking industry hosted by Changer Studios. Lastly, the Brisbane International Film Festival will be hosting the Queensland Emerging Screen Talent Conference which will feature seminars and industry roundtables.

A film that explores the role of car culture and the road movie genre has a rich history in Australia. In addition to road movies, this festival will feature a variety of ‘road movie’ films – some with a historical perspective, others with an international focus. Often associated with America, ‘road movies’ are also found in other parts of the world, including Europe. The researcher’s selection of 14 films highlights the diversity of the genre and its importance in our culture.

The festival will also feature several documentaries this year, including a Cannes-selected documentary starring Tom Hanks, Paul Newman, and Jude Law. There will also be a special screening of Ana Kokkinos’ Blessed. The Dressmaker, starring Kate Winslet, is another visually stunning film this year. Music and film are also returning to the GOMA Cinematheque during BIFF 2020, and this year will see the premiere of The Truffle Hunter.
