Welcome to our exciting new festival format – a blend of online and place-based film viewing – that we have curated especially for you! 

We’ve chosen the best of the world’s films for you to enjoy from the comfort of your living room, with friends, family or solo, when you like, any time of day or night for six weeks (15 April – 31 May). 

Enjoy mingling safely and having fun at the Launceston festival (29 April – 8 May), where we are celebrating Launceston’s title as the newest UNESCO City of Gastronomy (that’s food and wine to you) and as Wotif’s 2022 Best Town to Visit in Australia with: 

Films on food and wine in the award-winning Harvest Farmers Market, a craft beer venue and in world class restaurants
Films on other themes in unexpected venues like stunning mansions, arts precincts and the historic Star and Majestic Theatres
Major lunches/dinners and red-carpet parties
A half day conference on the opportunities flowing from the UNESCO award
Museum wine tasting of seriously aged wine plus wine tasting across Tamar Valley
Performances by the unique Tasmanian Leather Orchestra, musicians and artists
Plus Tamar River Cruises with a complimentary glass of wine


BOFA Film Festival relies on the generosity of its audience to remain viable. Please consider making a donation so that we can continue to bring the world to Launceston and Online through great films and world-class experiences. 


BOFA Film Festival acknowledges the Palawa people as traditional owners of lutruwita (Tasmania). We pay our respects to the traditional storytellers, designers, artists and owners of the land on which we live and work.
