Understory Film Festival

Now in its fifth year, Understory Film Festival is fast becoming a mainstay of the cultural landscape of Cairns. The festival focuses on locally produced short films and is gaining significant ground for the local industry by providing a development and presentation platform for both emerging and established filmmakers.

Local independent, student, emerging and professional filmmakers in the Cairns and Far North Queensland region are encouraged to create a short film to be in the running for awards and cash prizes. Entries can be across all genres, suitable for a 15+ audience.

A screening and awards night for FNQ short films including comedies, docos, music videos and more by student, emerging and professional filmmakers will take place later this year at Tanks Arts Centre.

Understory Film Festival is presented by Cairns Regional Council’s Cultural Services.
