The Far South Film Festival showcases films made by filmmakers living in regional and remote areas of Australia.

The festival is screened in Merimbula, NSW, Australia each year by Far South Film Inc, an association of professional and emerging filmmakers and digital creatives located in the South East region of NSW Australia.

We invite our fellow filmmakers from regional and remote areas of Australia to submit to our festival short films (up to 40 minutes) and feature films (up to 90 minutes) that reflect the people, environment and issues that are important to them.

We look forward to seeing the unique, the beautiful, the scary, the moving stories from people living in some of the lesser known areas of our island continent, outside the major metropolitan areas.
