Great Barrier Reef Underwater Film Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

19 Sep 2020

The Great Barrier Reef Underwater Film Festival – previously known as the Cairns Underwater Film Festival – is a showcase of images and films of the magical underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef as seen through the eye of the lens. Our goal is to inspire creativity and inspiration from local and international photographers and filmmakers, presenting the amazing natural beauty of the modern-day Great Barrier Reef.
The Festival – organised by a team of passionate volunteers – gives photographers and filmmakers an opportunity to display their talent in Cairns, Tropical North Queensland, and is the only Australian festival of its kind. The Great Barrier Reef Underwater Film Festival will delight and surprise those who love to explore the underwater world, especially the Great Barrier Reef, and those who appreciate nature and have a passion for world-class imagery.
