Brisbane cinephiles have become accustomed to disruption, especially when it comes to the city's major cinema showcase. Over the past decade, the Brisbane International Film Festival has changed its spot on the calendar four times, been cancelled and replaced, seen its replacement cancelled too, and then been resurrected not once but twice. But, in 2020, it's actually progressing as usual.

In its third year at the Gallery of Modern Art — with the fest both hosted and run by the South Bank venue — BIFF will take place as a physical event from Thursday, October 1–Sunday, October 11. In a normal year, that'd just be expected; however we all know that this isn't a normal year. Indeed, the Sydney Film Festival and Melbourne International Film Festival both scrapped their in-person fests in favour of virtual editions due to COVID-19.

Just what'll be screening at BIFF hasn't yet been revealed — but movie buffs will be watching the festival's flicks in a cinema. Just where, other than GOMA, BIFF will screen hasn't been revealed either.

The festival will provide details of not just its program and locations, but about its COVID-19 safe screening plans, closer to BIFF's October date. For now, though, get excited about heading out of the house, sitting in a darkened room with other film lovers, and feasting on a lineup of new local, Australian and international movies.

The 2020 Brisbane International Film Festival will take place between Thursday, October 1–Sunday, October 11.
