The 18th annual Gold Coast Film Festival will run during April across the Gold Coast.
Walk the red carpet on opening night alongside actors, filmmakers and film crew. Learn from Australia's leading producers, writers and directors in intimate seminars and workshops. Be captivated by internationally acclaimed dramas, comedies and genre films, local indie gems, engaging documentaries, family features, and the scariest horror films.
Check out the unique pop up outdoor cinemas on the iconic Surfers Paradise beach, in a brewery, and even floating on a boat.
As the City's flagship film event, the Gold Coast Film Festival brings film to life in a distinctly Gold Coast way for local and visiting audiences.
Special events include the Women in Film Lunch, Movie and Music Trivia, free outdoor film screenings, industry panels and workshops and SIPFest, the annual short film competition transforming Surfers Paradise beach into a vibrant and unique cinema featuring 14 cinematic masterpieces by emerging filmmakers from around Australia and internationally.
