Whilst we love love love having a place-based festival in Launceston, we know that sometimes life gets in the way and you can’t always get to the party, even if you live in Launceston. So we’re extremely excited to be continuing our Online Festival for 2022.

BOFA Online is once again bringing you a collection of stories that will have you on the edge of your set, laughing, crying and thinking about the times we live in. We have chosen 15 films from around the world across our themes of Stories of Us, Creating Wonder, World Stories, Call of the Wild and We are Who we Are.

We are also streaming the finalists of this year’s First Nations Stories Short Film Competition completely for FREE. This event is presented by yourtown, with the Awards Night taking place in Launceston on Saturday April 30.

There are a number of ways to enjoy BOFA Online. Tickets to individual films can be bought directly on the films page, or you can head to our ticket page to peruse the ticket and streaming bundles we have on offer this year, for both the Online and Launceston Festivals.

What are you waiting for, grab your friends and family or settle in for a solo session wherever you like, whenever you like, 24/7 for our six-week online festival (15 April – 31 May).

Once you’ve purchased your online pass, whether it’s for a single film or 10 films, you will be able to stream your film directly from your chosen device or use Apple TV or Chromecast to watch it on a smart TV for the full cinema experience. Unsure about streaming? Read Streaming FAQs

This year we’re moving away from our old model and embracing the unusual venues that emphasise the style and history of Launceston, from historic cinemas, arts precincts, heritage houses and even a pop-up cinema in a food market.

We’re also celebrating the recent recognition of the Launceston region as a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy, and hosting a series of food events matched with delicious films in some of the region’s finest food and wine establishments.

We are beyond exciting that BOFA Launceston is once again a place-based event showcasing this great regional city of film, visual and performing arts, food and wine.
