Whilst BOFA has always screened digital movies at Inveresk Precinct, none of our venues has cinema grade projection and this has now become a problem. Most major films of the quality we need to retain our status and credibility as a significant film festival on the Australian circuit, are now unavailable to us without the higher grade projection.

This  means that BOFA will not run in November this year, but given that the City of Launceston has signed off on for 3 year Signature Event funding from 2018, we are  launching  a new-look Festival from May 2018. We will announce the new venue and details shortly.

BOFA’s reputation and track record has also raised opportunities with many other festivals and corporate supporters.

Through 2017 we have regularly screened thought-provoking movies such s The Opposition and 16 Legs and will continue to screen outstanding independent films that we know you will love.

Scroll down as well to have a look at the 2016 BOFA programme. Our 2018 programme will have a lot to live up to!
