Gold Coast Film Festival

Gold Coast Film Festival

Lights, Cameras, Action! At the Gold Coast Film Festival

Movie lovers and aspiring filmmakers flock to Broadbeach for eleven days each April during the annual Gold Coast Film Festival, which offers visitors the chance to see some of the latest award winning movies and independent films or to join a workshop to learn how to make their own film masterpieces. It's always a busy period in Broadbeach, so booking accommodation for the Gold Coast Film Festival early is a good idea, particularly if you want to be close to all of the action. 

The Gold Coast Film Festival will be held between April 3rd and 13th, with events at various cinemas and venues, although the main program will be running at the Birch Carroll and Coyle Cinemas in the Pacific Fair Shopping Centre.  An exciting program of screenings and other events is planned for 2014. 

Since Queensland's film industry is mainly based along the Gold Coast, this festival has become one of the main events in the year for the Australian film industry, making this the perfect time of year for ambitious young filmmakers to visit. A series of free workshops and seminars will give young people and those who are looking for their chance to break into the industry the chance to learn from the experts. However, the event is not just for those in the industry, but also for anyone who enjoys a great movie. With events and film screenings occurring every day, the Gold Coast Film Festival can add some entertainment to anyone's holiday plans.

Highlights will include free outdoor screenings of films for all the family, the chance to see some top movies before they are released and cinema screenings of the best independent films, including many that were made locally in Queensland. All genres of film will be represented, from horror to comedy, and there will be films from all around the world, including some foreign gems that may get their only Australian theatre screening at this festival. The 2014 festival will also include Cool Japan, a program of events dedicated to Japanese culture and including screenings of some truly unique films and anime. 

If you need accommodation for the Gold Coast Film Festival, there are plenty of options available in the surrounding area. The Broadbeach beachfront will be the most convenient location for accommodation for the Gold Coast Film Festival, and allows you to enjoy sea views from your own apartment in between screenings.
