2023 North Bellarine Film Festival

Bringing great cinema to the Geelong region since 2017!

The 2023 North Bellarine Film Festival (NBFF) will be held on 17-18 November at the Potato Shed in Drysdale.

The festival continues its focus on short films by screening the work of some of the best independent Australian and international filmmakers in its Saturday afternoon short film session.

The 2023 Emerging Filmmaker Award will be presented at a special ceremony on Saturday evening. The Emerging Filmmaker Award is conferred on a Victorian Filmmaker who is twenty-five years of age or younger and who demonstrates exceptional talent and commitment to their craft.

The ceremony will include the winning and finalist’s films and is your chance to see some of the country’s most promising young filmmakers at the start of their careers. 2023 will be the fifth time that the award has been presented.

Catering will be provided at the Opening Night and the Emerging Filmmaker Award ceremony by Pier Street Café in Portarlington. Beer, local wines and soft drinks will also be available at the cash bar.

Tickets available from early September.
