About Byron Bay Film Festival

The Byron Bay International Film Festival (BBFF) provides attendees with the opportunity to experience a truly distinctive Australian film festival in one of Australia's most desirable locations. BBFF has grown from a small community event into Australia's largest regional film festival with a large and ever-growing global profile. This provides the Northern Rivers, one of Australia’s most active film hubs, with a strong international platform which highlights filmmaking as a key creative industry in the region and NSW. This festival has steadily grown from screening 55 films selected from 90 entries at the inaugural BBFF 2006, to 100 films screened in 15 sessions selected from 240 entries in 2007. In 2008, J'aimee Skippon-Volke stepped up from her role as Festival Manager to take the role of Festival Director. Using her knowledge of social media and networking, she grew entries to over 800 with hardly any marketing funds. From these films, 150 were selected and screened over 30 sessions to an audience of 3,400. BBFF2014 featured over 226 films from 36 countries that were screened over 50 sessions plus the 'Schools Sessions', adding a further 8 sessions. Nine master-classes, workshops & forums were held some of which were free. This festival screened a record 43 World Premieres – testament to the perceived importance of our event to Independent Filmmakers. 102 films were Australian Premieres and 215 had never played in the greater Byron Region. 91 were Australian films, of which 14 were made by filmmakers under 25. 23 locally made films were included in the programme. 54% of the Australian films screened were represented by their Director/Producer, cast and crew members, including 73 Australian Filmmakers from 49 films. 87% of General Sessions featuring Australian films had a filmmaker attending.
