Noosa International Film Festival 2017

Celebrate cinema on the Sunshine Coast.

From drones to cute Japanese animation to movies from almost every corner on earth, there's a film festival for everything — or so it seems. Thanks to the latest event to join Queensland's jam-packed cinema calendar, there's also a film festival for just about everywhere as well.

The Noosa International Film Festival kicked off in 2016; however it's still a new kid on the movie-going block. For its 2017 iteration, it aims to entice cinephiles away from the Sunshine Coast's many beaches and into darkened rooms to watch survivalist dramas, artistic experiments, riveting race relations docos and plenty of shorts.

Taking place at BCC Noosa, Noosa Arts Theatre, The j Theatre and Eumundi School of Arts Hall from October 26 to 29, the fest includes Daniel Radcliffe battling the elements in Jungle, the world's first painted feature in Loving Vincent and the Samuel L. Jackson-narrated I Am Not Your Negro. Other highlights range from Isabelle Huppert in musical romance Souvenir to Academy Award-winning cinematographer John Seale introducing The English Patient.
