About Us

CinefestOZ premieres Australian feature films and special events in cinemas and picturesque venues in Bunbury, Busselton and Margaret River in Western Australia’s beautiful South West.

A feast for the senses and an unforgettable nine-day getaway.

CinefestOZ has consolidated its position as the premiere destination film festival in Australia with record numbers of high calibre film guests and a sensational line-up of new Australian films.

A unique aspect of the festival is the $100,000 annual Film Prize, the largest film prize dedicated to Australian feature films. Awarded by a high- profile Jury of Industry experts, the prestigious Film Prize acknowledges excellence in the art of filmmaking from an Australian feature film. 

Now in its 16th year, the festival will once again captivate the South West with an exciting line-up of World and WA premieres, In Conversation dining events and Short Film Sets, along with its free Community Days, Cinesnaps School Program and Industry Program. 

CinefestOZ thanks Premium Partners Tourism WA, Rio Tinto, Screenwest and the City of Busselton. The festival acknowledges its strong support from Lotterywest and Screen Australia.
