There’s so much to look forward to Byron Bay International Film Festival 2104 and as a prelude to the 10 day festival, BBFF is sharing the movie love for free at Byron Bay’s most romantic night of the year!
Our iconic Full Moon beachside screening will be held on Valentine’s Day – Friday 14 February 2014. Festival organisers are presenting a selection of the best films from BBFF’s past seven seasons on the themes of ‘connection’ and ‘relationships’. We expect thousands of people to once again join with loved ones and picnics in tow for a free night of cinema under the stars and to the backdrop of the Byron lighthouse and sound of crashing waves. The evening kicks off with some great live music from 6.30pm as the light fades.
The chosen selection will include heart-warming, funny and impacting short films that explore the themes of ‘connection’ and ‘relationships’. Stay tuned for musical artist announcements soon by following the festival on Facebook.
True Beauty This Night (USA) This multi-award-winning audience favourite is an unlikely love story about a man who meets the love of his life but has his work cut out to convince her she’s the one.
Last Rain (Spain) Is a dramatic short film about a man that arrives at a disco, confused and without really knowing why he is there. He sees a young woman, to whom he feels inexplicably attracted. As he observes her, a succession of events from their future lives gradually becomes clear, and the young woman becomes increasingly intrigued with the handsome stranger who seems to miraculously be able to predict their future.
I Am A Girl! (The Netherlands) A multi-award winning short film from BBFF2013. Every 13-year-old girl dreams of that nice, but hard-to-get, boy. And Joppe is no different, consulting her friend on how to ask Brian out. But just how should she tell Brian that she was born a boy?
Within (Australia) is an experimental surf film by talented local filmmaker Darius Devas about our deep love and connection with the ocean, and Making Within explores his deep inspiration to create it, following the death of his childhood surf buddy.
The Allan Byrne Movie Tribute (Australia) BBFF is thrilled to be able to show this new cut of BBFF2011’s multi-award winning film, The Last Paradise, created recently for Tracks Magazine. The moving film explores themes of adventure travel, lifestyle, environment and innovation in Australia, considered “The Last Paradise”, through 45 years of stunning unseen original footage as a tribute to the late great tube rider, master board designer and all round lovable larrikin, Al Byrne.
