Presenting Aboriginal film content and activities during CinefestOZ Film Festival.
IndigifestOZ showcases quality Indigenous film works and engages film-goers through a combination of Feature Films in General Screenings, Short Films in Festival Side Bars and in the free Community Screenings.
Together with the Cinesnaps Schools Program, IndigifestOZ also offers Busselton school incursions and excursions, including engagement with established and emerging Indigenous filmmakers.
In promoting Aboriginal film works, new audiences develop, as does an increased awareness and understanding of culture and appreciation of Aboriginal talent.
Each year IndigifestOZ includes an exciting line up of films, events and Indigenous film guests for schools and community members to enjoy.
2018 IndigifestOZ Day Busselton, was an enjoyable and vibrant day featuring Aboriginal guests and films plus interactive filmmaking fun and Indigenous stalls.
