With the year fast coming to a close we are proud to announce our 2020 Festival dates, for BOFA 2020 (#BOFA2020) as:
Launceston Friday 1st – Sunday 3rd May,2020
Hobart Friday 15th – Sunday 17th May, 2020
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 The Good Life. 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. The 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!
