Gold Coast Film Festival


The Gold Coast Film Festival (GCFF) celebrates and promotes all aspects of film and filmmaking from one of Australia’s pre-eminent filmmaking locations and holiday destinations – the Gold Coast. From internationally acclaimed dramas, comedies and genre films, locally made indie gems and family features, the GCFF offers a culturally diverse, interactive and engaging program of film, events and special guests. For filmmakers and students alike the festival runs a series of free seminars and workshops to educate, inspire and embrace the Gold Coast as a filmmaking destination.

Our location is one with a heritage of filmmaking, with international filmmaking introduced on the Gold Coast in the late 1980’s. Fast-forward to 2016 and major international films Unbroken, Pirates of the Caribbean and Thor: Rangarok have chosen the Gold Coast’s incredible locations and highly competent crew to shoot their multi-million dollar films. The GCFF is the city’s flagship film event and helps promote the city as one of Australia’s major filmmaking hubs.

The 14th annual Gold Coast Film Festival (GCFF) ran 31st March – 12th April 2016. With 80 film and film related events in ten different Gold Coast locations, the festival entertained and inspired over 14,000 people. The 15th annual GCFF will run 19th - 30th April, 2017.
