Gold Coast Film Festival

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

3 Apr 2019 to 14 Apr 2019

The 17th annual Gold Coast Film Festival will run from 3-14 April 2019 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.

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 and to help grow and support Queensland’s screen industry from one of Australia’s top filmmaking destinations – the Gold Coast.

Special events include the Women in Film Lunch, Movie & 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 12 cinematic masterpieces by emerging filmmakers from around Australia. YScreen – a selection of entertaining and intelligent films and workshops for children and teens is open to schools and families.

Gold Coast Film Festival’s full program of 100+ films, panels, parties and events will be announced in early 2019.
