The Byron Underground Film Festival is one of Australia’s newest film festivals, focusing on innovative, experimental, independent and ground-breaking cinema from around the world.
As one of the only regions of the country which has remained relatively Covid-19 free over the last year, we are looking forward to celebrating the cinema experience without the risks associated with holding in-person events in major cities.
Byron Bay and the nearby Gold Coast has recently become the centre of much activity in the Australian film industry. The festival has tapped into this growth through our celebration of new independent cinema culture. As a popular travel destination, we plan to position our festival as an attractive option for the festival circuit which filmmakers, critics, distributors and audiences can visit without the risks of covid.
