Festival Dates Coming Soon

REAL FILM FESTIVAL 2021!

We are busy working behind the scenes with the aim of bringing you a festival between March and May 2021. Feel free to follow us on our socials or subscribe to our enews to keep up to date with the festival.

More than any other film festival, the Real Film Festival defines the Hunter’s personality. For over eight years, the festival program has presented films by independent international, national and local storytellers whose presence at the festival creates a buzz and honesty; a world class event right on our doorstep! Screen industry professionals who have shared their stories and expertise have included; Don McAlpine, Jillian Armstrong, Jeff Julian, Tony Buckley, David Caesar, Jason Van Genderen, Vanessa Alexander, Ian Hamilton, Scott Roberts, Paige Badenoch, Rachel Blake, Zac Garred, Anthony Marsh and William Ward to name a few.

The Real Film Festival’s contemporary programming positions it as one of Australia’s leading documentary film festivals – a real place for emerging independent filmmakers from which to launch their careers and an injection of cultural innovation into the local community to entertain increasingly socially aware and savvy audiences. The Real Film Festival is the region’s only event which celebrates the art of storytelling through film.
