Far South Film acknowledges our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first inhabitants of the nation and the traditional custodians of the lands where we live, create, learn and work and we pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
The festival is produced by Far South Film Inc on the lands of the Djiringanj custodians of the Yuin nation.
Each year we invite filmmakers from regional and remote areas of Australia to submit to our festival films that reflect the people, environment and issues that matter to them.
This is our 3rd annual festival, the last two having been online-only due to COVID.
In 2022, the festival is being held in-person in Merimbula NSW as well as here online.
You can watch festival films online from 20 August, plus recordings of the in-person festival Q&A panels and Awards Ceremony from 21 August, once they have been uploaded to this platform.
Films will be available to watch online until AEST midnight 31 August 2022.
We look forward to watching the unique, the beautiful, the scary and the moving stories from filmmakers living outside the metropolitan areas of our island continent.
The major prize for Best Film is $1000 with prizes in other categories. These are announced during the Awards Ceremony on Sunday 21 August. The People’s Choice Award is voted on by the audience via an emailed survey and announced on 1 September.
