Red carpet rolled out for Brisbane International Film Festival
Australian premieres, celebrated directors, local legends and Queensland stories will dazzle audiences over the coming 10 days, following the official launch of the Brisbane International Film Festival tonight.
Minister for the Arts Leeanne Enoch said the Brisbane International Film Festival (BIFF) celebrates international and Australian contemporary screen culture.
“It’s an exciting time to be in Brisbane, as over the next 10 days the city will host new release features and documentaries, screenings alongside live music, and enticing panel discussions,” Ms Enoch said.
“It is also wonderful that this year BIFF – a Queensland institution in itself – has found a new home at the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, which is presenting the new chapter of this long-running and much-loved festival.”
Ms Enoch said the Palaszczuk Government was committed to strengthening Queensland’s position as a leading screen destination.
BIFF runs from 11 – 20 October and will be presented in conjunction with cinema and venue partners throughout Brisbane.
