Noosa International Film Festival will run from 3-6 November 2016 and is being billed as a celebration of great films, and the art of making them.

Among the highlights of the Festival in addition to the short film competitions, will be a series of cinematic events including 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.

The Festival program will be brought together from the four corners of the globe by a panel of cinema experts and presented to an Australia-wide audience of discerning film-lovers at select venues throughout the world-renowned destination of Noosa.
