Take a deep BOFA

What is a BOFA we hear you ask? It’s a breath of fresh air and, after the year that was, we could all do with a little. In fact, we believe a BOFA is so good for you, we’re inviting you back into the cinemas for the 2021 Tasmanian BOFA Film Festival. This May join us as we return to the big screen in both Launceston (30 April –2 May) and Hobart (28-30 May).

Or if the sofa is your thing, jump on to our FREE online BOFA (3 –30 May). All subscribers to the BOFA newsletter are sent the free access code to the online film festival just before the festival goes live on the early morning of Monday 3 May. Join now.

BOFA 2021 will showcase inspiring films curated around themes of Stories of Us, Chasing Wonder, The Choices We Make, World Stories, We Are Who We Are, Eat & Drink, By Design, and Climate Action. ALL films are MA 15+.

From a brewery to a restaurant and even a men’s outfitter we’ve found quirky venues for our BOFA Fringe classics screenings every Friday in May.

And if sumptuous films aren’t enough, the BOFA 2021 art exhibition, both in-gallery and online, as well as our new Icons of Tasmania online store, will be sure to delight.

The scene is set for our Roaring 20’s red-carpet opening night events in Launceston and Hobart, so make sure you get your tickets, because this is a BOFA like never before.

ICONS OF TASMANIA

BOFA Film Festival is proudly Tasmania’s film festival and we are understandably lovers of all things Tasmanian. So, this year we have picked the best wine, spirits and food producers, the best places to stay while you enjoy Tasmania, the best producers of artisanal and other products as well as the best providers of uniquely Tasmanian experiences.

We call them the Icons of Tasmania.

WHAT OUR FILM LOVERS AND FILM MAKERS HAD TO SAY

Mr Sam Neil and I had great fun, with inspiring films, fabulous audiences and wine and food. A perfect Filmmakers festival.
Gillian Armstrong, director, My Brilliant Career

Gillian Armstrong and Sam Neill,BOFA 2019 guests

Fantastic program – best film festival I’ve been to, on-line or anywhere else. I can hardly believe it took me to so many different, interesting, colourful, challenging, beautiful places and brought me into contact with so many inspiring, admirable and likeable people. It has been a highlight of lockdown.
