The drop dead end for the FREE online BOFA 2021 films is Sunday midnight 30th May. If you haven’t seen ‘em all, here’s the top viewed films of the festival you mustn’t miss.

Finding Vivian Maier – a reclusive nanny turns out to be one of the great observational photographers of the modern era. Great story, outstanding photos.

Rosie – Roddy Doyle of Trainspotting fame scripted this moving story of a family forced into homelessness and their fight to keep their family functioning.

Black Man’s Houses – Wybalena is the Tasmanian Palawa/Pakana word for Black Man’s Houses, the place where the aboriginal survivors of Tasmania’s Black Wars were sent.

Climbing Blind – You’ll watch agog at the skills of this man who summits the Old Man of Hoy. He’s blind but… able, he says. One for all ages.

Crescendo – Uplifting film about a group of Israeli and Palestinian classical musicians forming an orchestra. What could go wrong? Watch the news.

Photograph – A love story for the ages, set in modern day India, with more than the usual impediments for true love to run true.

The Olive Tree – Young Spaniard takes on the corporate giants to get back her beloved ancient olive tree for her equally beloved granddad.


And now it is Hobart’s turn in the limelight. Yes, the films we showed in-cinema in Launceston earlier in May will now grace the silver screen in Hobart from Friday 28th to Sunday 30th May. Book now

With airfares cut in half and the Midland Highway now making a trip down south a piece of cake, there is no reason why northerners of any location couldn’t come join us in Hobart for BOFA, breathtaking adventures and beauty abounding.

These Icons of Tasmania offers will help make the decision easy.

Need a place to stay? Check out Hobart’s Sullivans Cove Apartments. Or Peppers Silo Hotel, Stillwater Seven Rooms and Red Feather Inn in the north. Going Northwest? Then luxuriate at Horizon Deluxe Apartments.

Experience Tasmania’s wilderness parks, magnificent ocean and coastal scenes, kayaking amongst the dolphins or take a tour around Tassie. Need to relax and tap your creative self, then Paint the Town Red?

Take a bit of Tassie home. Pack up a pair of Blunnies, get a gift of Tasmanian craft or drape yourself in designer fashion.
