AFF is one of Australia’s premier film festivals, known for its distinctive programming and innovative approach to new screens.
Over twelve days this world-renowned festival provides a wide range of opportunities for festival goers to be inspired, entertained, and educated, through a unique program of the best of global and national cinema, forums, collaborations, and special events.
AFF celebrates diversity and excellence through creative storytelling and provides a strong platform for new and emerging Australian talent. The Festival raises the profile of arts and screen culture in South Australia.
The Festival’s Investment Fund stands out as one of its most unique features. Over the past 20 years, AFF has successfully nurtured and showcased some of the most impactful Australian films through this fund. Moreover, the fund has played a pivotal role in reshaping the position of Australian film festivals within the industry.
AFF also presents a number of prestigious awards including one of the world’s first VR awards, juried by notable Australian and international filmmakers, critics and writers.
“My association with the Adelaide Film Festival has been a joy over many years. The programming is excellent, the organisation runs smoothly, but what I really love about the Festival experience in Adelaide is its intimacy. Filmgoers and film-lovers mingle on the streets, along with premiers, politicians and artists, conversations flow, everyone has an opinion, and the parties are fun,” says Margaret Pomeranz AM, AFF Patron.
