Understory Film Festival offers film lovers and filmmakers alike the perfect opportunity to celebrate the stories of Far North Queensland through the medium of short film.
2020 marks the seventh annual Understory Film Festival Screening and Awards Night; an evening dedicated to recognising the extraordinary expertise, energy and commitment of student, emerging and professional filmmakers, living in the Far North.
Experience short film masterpieces, across a vast selection of genres, including comedies, documentaries, music videos, animations, experimental and more. Shortlisted entries will be screened and the winners announced, with the final category, the People’s Choice Award, to be determined by the audience on the night.
This year, the event will be held at Munro Martin Parklands, so take the chance to enjoy a curated selection of magnificent short films, produced right here, under the tropical night sky.
Bring a picnic, a low set chair or rug and take advantage of the onsite food vendors and licensed bar.
Remember, buy together to be together; if you want to be with your friends, you will need to book your tickets in one transaction.
