These community filmmakers, who range from beginner to intermediate levels of expertise, will have a chance to have their completed films screened during the festival on Sunday, 9th October at 6:45pm. All are welcome for the screening.

Film enthusiasts can also enjoy the Publika Fringe Screenings during which selected films will be showing at partner venues

  • GOOD NEWS:
