NOTE: This article is older than 12 months

The highly anticipated program for the 3rd Noosa International Film Festival (25-28 October) has been released with a line-up of 80 films from 20 countries taking place across Noosa and Eumundi.

"This year's festival is better than ever with seven specially themed short film sessions, awesome Inside Cinema workshops as well as discussions with award-winning special guests," said Festival President Holly Pittman.

Official selection short films will screen all day at The J on Saturday 27 October with four 90-minute screenings. The diverse themed sessions about Women & Film, Real Stories and Thrillers are sure to entertain all filmgoers.

Between sessions, enjoy the festive vibe with local entertainment, food vendors and a coffee cart. Make a day of it and see multiple film sessions by purchasing a festival pass.

Be thrilled and chilled while you enjoy your morning coffee at the first short film session - Wake in Fright at 10am, with a mix of thrillers from Australia and the UK.

At 12pm enjoy films made by women or about women, to inspire, captivate and intrigue through stories of love - lost and found, at the Women & Film screening.

Session 3 at 2pm screens Stories We Tell: Part I sharing films filled with fables and fantasy, fun and love in tales from across Australia.

Then at 4pm, Session 4 is Based on a True Story – inventors, prime ministers, donut makers and artists are but a few individuals who share their lives with us. Attendees at this session may receive a surprise from the filmmakers of OLYMPIC NICK: A DONUTUMENTARY.

Join the filmmakers on Saturday evening to celebrate the films in competition with a special awards presentation followed by an extended screening of the 10 winning films at the NIFF Short Film Awards Show, from 6.30pm.

"We're honoured to have Oscar-winning cinematographer, John Seale return to Noosa for a third year in a row. Mr Seale is best known for his work on films such as Mad Max: Fury Road, The Talented Mr Ripley, Gorillas in the Mist, and The English Patient. He's our founding patron and is becoming a real favourite within our festival community," said Holly Pittman.
