Cinefest OZ Returns

The annual Cinefest OZ film festival is back again on August 21st to 25th 2013. Mark these dates on your calendar and get ready for a fascinating line-up of national and international premiere movie screenings, filmmaker forums, red carpet events, winery lunches, small bar screenings and unique experiences over the five days. This is your chance to enjoy iconic films in a fantastic landscape.

The article “What is Cinefest OZ?” has full details on this event. It says, “As in all good scripts Cinefest OZ began as a dream – a dream of creating the beautiful seaside town of Busselton into the equivalent venue of a cinematic experience like its sister festival held in St Tropez. A film festival which showcased the very best of the extra-ordinary talent, exhibited by both French and Australian film makers – a festival which would celebrate the historic harmonics of French influences on the southwest corner of the state.”

Cinefest OZ aims to offer an extravaganza of films- films that entertain the young, intrigue families and enthrall all film lovers – films that offer everybody the chance to experience the joy, the sadness, the pathos, the laughter and the real stories so magnificently depicted by the art of the camera. It is no surprise that this prestigious and vibrant film festival is growing in popularity and size each year.

Every year, Cinefest OZ attracts a diverse and rapidly growing number of film-lovers and draws Australia’s top actors and filmmakers. The festival features new and thrilling films, most of which have never been shown before and showcases talent that is otherwise concealed from the public eye. Festival goers can expect to enjoy new tales, rich in magnificence while looking at the future or relishing the past. All films shown at the festival have either an Australian or French connection.

Cinefest OZ is a great festival to attend for film lovers, film followers, filmmakers and anyone who appreciates the splendour of the south west region. Centred in the wonderful city of Busselton, the event extends to Dunsborough, Bunbury and Margaret River with premiers, free community events, additional screenings and a special Schools Program. The festival brings all the delights of the region together; the wine, the food and the sense of location that is the south west.
