Central Queensland's premiere film arts festival features an opening night premiere party, feature films, documentaries, masterclasses, panel discussions and selected short films in competition reviewed by a jury of film and entertainment professionals. 

The 5th annual Capricorn Film Festival is Central Queensland’s premiere film destination event presented by Livingstone Shire Council, held from 20-23 November.

 

DIRECTORS WELCOME

The 5th Capricorn Film Festival is going to be the biggest film event of the year in Central Queensland. This Festival is a unique cultural platform where latest achievements in cinema are viewed, discussed and debated for both their narrative and technical merits by audiences of cinema lovers.

This year we are presenting a selection of 17 feature films, short films and documentaries from around around the world. The selection of films for the Festival has been made out of over 300 films submitted.

We have decided to celebrate the 5th Capricorn Film Festival as paperless festival, completely discarding the use paper and paper made materials for publicity. Instead, digital and other media will be used for publicity and other business activities of the Festival.

The organising team of #capfilmfest has decided to brand Yeppoon as “Clean City”. There would be no promotional billboards, corflutes to maintain a clean look of the scenic town for our visitors.

#capfilmfest is marching forward. Incessant efforts right from the first edition has resulted in the improved quality of the festival so far. We are aware that there is still room for improvement. Necessary course correction at appropriate stages will improve the festival and we will take it to new heights with all your support. #capfilmfest relies on the efforts and enthusiasm of many people to bring our festival to fruition. I would like to extend very sincere thanks to everyone who is helping us to make this wonderful event possible and to our enthusiastic community who are our backbone.

Together we can make #capfilmfest a profound and memorable experience for everyone.

 

FESTIVAL LOCATION

Located 40 km east of Rockhampton, you’ll discover the relaxed Capricorn Coast paradise of Yeppoon. The crystal blue waters of Keppel Bay and the Southern Great Barrier Reef lap at our doorstep and the tranquil Pumpkin Island paradise and Great Keppel Island itself, whisper welcome. These unique islands nestle among 25 or more just waiting to be explored. 

 

There are onshore adventures to be had, too. In and around Yeppoon, limestone caves lie waiting to be explored and native zoos and crocodile farms promise to delight. For relaxation, family farm stays and wellness retreats soothe the soul. For adventure and adrenaline, choppering over land and sea or skydiving over our sandy shoreline will get pulses racing. But don’t just take our word for it, visit Capricorn Holidays to find out more and to book your accommodation for the festival.
