CinefestOZ acknowledges the Wardandi, Piblemen, and Menang people, the spiritual and cultural custodians of this land on which we live and work. We honour and respect the significant role First Nations people play in our community and in guiding us and allowing our festival to flourish.
Barry House – CinefestOZ Patron
Hon Barry House B.Econ, JP has been Patron of CinefestOZ since it’s inception 11 years ago. Recently retired from public life after 30 years as a State Parliamentarian he continues active involvement with many organisations. CinefestOZ is close to his heart as a community driven event which has grown to one of the most important Film Festivals in Australia. This has been achieved with passion and commitment from a largely volunteer workforce which has attracted support and acceptance from Industry, Governments, Sponsors and Community. A highlight of the annual Busselton Margaret River events calendar.
