BOFA 2018 shaping up

In our last newsletter we shared the news that BOFA would not be running in 2017 due to projection, venue, pricing and timing issues.

Since the end of BOFA 2016 a number of developments have occurred to address these challenges:

  • We have found a hirer of a high quality DCP projector, screen and sound systems .
  • We have a great central venue for conducting the festival with 400+ seat (with the hired DCP) and 100 seats (lower grade projector) spaces.
  • The Star Theatre in Invermay (140 seats with DCP) has commenced its building renovations and plans to open in summer 2018. We are awaiting information and costings but are keen to make use of this exciting renewed venue.
  • We can continue to use the QVMAG theatrette (66 seats, lower grade projector).
  • Launceston City Council has agreed to three year signature funding as recognition of the quality of past BOFAs
  • Interns and volunteers have approached us with a view to supporting the festival management in the lead up to and running of the festival.

So watch this space as we put the details together into a plan for a fresh and exciting BOFA 2018!
