See the world differently at the Noosa International Film Festival, 25-28 October 2018. Experience incredible Australian and international short films from more than 20 countries, new feature length films plus industry workshops, all presented over four days across Noosa and Eumundi venues.

NIFF 2018 kicks off with its Inside Cinema program of industry workshops, networking and panel discussions at Peppers Noosa Resort & Villas on Thursday 25th and Friday 26th October.

On Thursday afternoon, ride into the dark heart of Australia with our first feature film screening at the festival – be mesmerised and engaged by Terra Nullius, an Australian political revenge fable in three acts with panel discussion by moderator Amanda Slack Smith, Artistic Director Brisbane International Film Festival in discussion with Academy Award-winning cinematographer and Festival Patron, John Seale and Australian film director, Heath Davis. Part political satire, eco­horror and road movie, this feature film samples and remixes some of the most iconic characters, moments and imagery in Australian cinema and will have you reeling.

Then delve into the life and work of Academy Award-nominated film editor, Jill Bilcock in Dancing The Invisible. Jill will join us as a special guest for a Q&A afterwards.

Kick off festival celebrations and mingle with industry and special guests on the blue carpet at NIFF's opening night party on Friday 26th. Headlining the festival this year at the Official Opening night is the Queensland premiere screening of Australian feature film Book Week. Recently sold out with rave reviews for its world premiere at the Melbourne International Film Festival, this shaggy dark comedy is about a disgraced novelist turned English teacher trying to find redemption. After the screening, there will be a Q&A with director Heath Davis, who based his film on his own experiences as a teacher. Catch the winning short films from around the world at the NIFF 2018 Short Film Awards Show on Saturday night at The J Noosa and celebrate with the filmmakers.

Official Selection shorts will screen at multiple sessions across the weekend at The J Noosa, Eumundi School of Arts and Noosa's Land & Sea Brewery.
