GREAT STORIES TOGETHER

HOBART FRI 15- SUN 17 MAY 2020 | LAUNCESTON FRI 1 - SUN 3 MAY 2020

 2020 TASMANIAN BREATH OF FRESH AIR (BOFA) FILM FESTIVAL

LAUNCESTON (FRI 1- SUN 3 MAY) HOBART (FRI 15 – SUN17 MAY) 

IT’S OUR 10TH ANNIVERSARY ……AND YOU’RE INVITED

After a very successful 2019 trial of BOFA Hobart, BOFA 2020 will curate festivals of equal size in both Launceston and Hobart. Films from Tasmania, Australia and the world’s best films are being chosen right now with new categories joining the line up including Irish Stories, Climate Action and 2020 Vision. Let us know if you have any suggestions. The majority of films will have Q & A sessions so you can hear from the film makers, experts and the audience about the issues raised by the subject and production. We’re finalising details on a major Tasmanian Short Film Competition with original works on the Tasmanian themes plus the best of Tasmanian film makers’ shorts.  BOFA Fringe screenings of classics in quirky locations will be expanded and will also run in Hobart. The Day on the Kingsway in Launceston will be back again, bigger and better, on Sunday 3rd May. AND, of course, there will be parties to celebrate our 10th Anniversary. Put the dates in your diary now!

2020 PROGRAM

We’re curating films across 8 themes. The final program will be launched publicly on the 25th March.
