Iconic Film Festival comes to Queenscliff

Friday, 15 December 2017

In an exciting coup for the Borough, the Peninsula Film Festival is coming to Queenscliff this February.

The free, family-friendly event will be staged in the Queenscliff Town Hall on Saturday 10 February 2018 from 7.00pm to 10.30pm.

“Council is thrilled to welcome the Peninsula Film Festival to Queenscliff,” said Borough of Queenscliffe Mayor, Cr Susan Salter.

“This popular event presents another drawcard for visitors to our region and creates increased opportunities for our community to benefit.”

Council is inviting expressions of interest from local traders for on-site catering, overnight accommodation packages and pre-show dining deals. Submissions should be emailed to carly.douglas@queenscliffe.vic.gov.au by midday on Thursday 21 December 2017. For more information, please call Council’s offices on 03 5258 1377.

Festival director and well-known Australian actor Steve Bastoni said extending the festival to the Bellarine Peninsula is the fruition of a long-held dream.

“By extending the Festival to Queenscliff, we are bringing our program to a new audience and providing them with the opportunity to view fresh Australian and international content that they won’t see anywhere else,” said Mr Bastoni.

Founded in 2011, the Peninsula Film Festival has attracted growing support from audiences and acclaimed actors and directors including Fred Schepisi, Sam Worthington, Russell Crowe and Nash Edgerton.
