Program 2015

The 2015 program

A little something for everyone at this year’s festival from Friday 5th June to Sunday 7th June: there’s heart-warming historical action family drama, a Disney favourite, a poignant tale of hope and redemption, a compelling view of indigenous Australia and not forgetting the Sunday night intense and skilful horror/fantasy closure, which Stephen King (yes, him) has called “Highly disturbing and highly recommended”.

The hugely popular Short Film festival on Saturday night kicks off with some local shorts shot by Gippslanders (some of them in and around Briagolong feature local casts. Very exciting.)  This will be followed by intermission, a chance to warm up at the cosy fireplace, enjoy a wine and a chat. After the break, there is a special treat – a double bill featurette. And then some terrific surprises, including another local connection with William Kelly’s War – meet the director over a wine after the screening.

What a year, what a lineup.  Pick up your printed version in shops around Briagolong, Maffra, Stratford and Sale.  If you want a few to hand out to friends, either download from above, or email us at and we’ll get some to you.

We can scarcely wait.  See you here, Friday 5 June to Sunday 7 June! And don’t forget to sign up as a BFFF (Briagolong Film Festival Friend) to go into the draw for our fab festival prize.
