Screenwave International Film Festival


Coffs Coast flagship summer film festival is back for 2018: presale passes on sale this Friday

Screenwave International Film Festival (SWIFF) is back for 2018. Experience a bolder and wider film program than ever before, as well as special guests, film culture events, and a pioneering public art installation project.

This year's we're screening more than 50 films from over 18 countries across locations on the Coffs Coast, including Coffs Harbour and Bellingen. Program strands include World Cinema, Documentary, Australian Cinema, Call of The Surf, Women of Action, LGBTQI and Short Film Finalists.

Now in its third year, SWIFF has grown to be a flagship Mid North Coast summer cultural event which attracts visitors from across Australia and around the world. SWIFF unites the talents of the best and the brightest cultural minds in the community to bring an international film festival experience to Coffs Harbour and reinvent the cultural scene on the Coffs Coast.

In addition to curating an adventurous and rich program that showcases critically-acclaimed films from around the world, the festival delivers a true film culture experience of workshops, events, galas and much more.

Dave Horsley, festival director, said: “The groundswell that’s happened behind SWIFF is part of the larger emergence of unique cultures popping up around regional Australia, separate from metro cities. We’re proud for the Screenwave International Film Festival to be among some of the great Coffs Coast festivals that give our beautiful region its identity.”
