Port Stephens Film Festival

Thursday 14 August 2014 to Sunday 17 August 2014


Welcome independent filmmakers, to the brand new Port Stephens Film Festival, 2014.

The Festival has exploded into its inaugural year, with a feast of visual storytelling from fledgling and established directors, both locally and internationally. Entries are invited for features and shorts across all genres.

Successful entries will be screened above the crystal clear waters of Shoal Bay, and on state-of-the-art screens across the fabulous seaside town of Nelson Bay.

During the Port Stephens Film Festival in August, beautiful Shoal Bay will be transformed into a pedestrian cinema mall, with the main beachside road closed to traffic. Film Festival-goers can enjoy cruisy and laid-back outdoor moonlight screenings over the water, while sitting on white sand.
