CinefestOZ Film Festival (25 – 29 August) gets our vote as the festival most likely to run as normal, with the South Western Australian fest happening in the safest state around. Exactly how many of the non-WA filmmakers be will be able to attend the premieres of their films remains to be seen.

The opening night film is pretty safe, with the WA-made surfing documentary Facing Monsters, directed by Bentley Dean and produced by Chris Veerhuis, having its world premiere in Margaret River.
