Discover the Gold Coast’s rich history in filmmaking at this year’s Gold Coast Film Festival. The Gold Coast Film Festival returns this 2018 for its 16th annual event, and it’s not to be passed up on for those that have a burning passion for film! This April make your way to the Gold Coast to celebrate the Gold Coast’s fantastic contribution to film at the Gold Coast Film Festival, which will be hosting a number of film-related events up and down the scenic Gold Coast.

Since the 1980s the Gold Coast has been a popular filming location for a number of huge international blockbusters as well as famous Aussie classics. Films such as Pirates of the Caribbean, San Andreas, Thor: Ragnarok, Kong: Skull Island, Unbroken, and the upcoming Aquaman have used the picturesque scenery of the Gold Coast as filming locations. At the 2018 Gold Coast Film Festival you’ll be able to discover these must-see filming locations for yourself with the Gold Coast Movie Locations Tour. Explore these locations that have been made famous during an exciting bus ride, which will also feature never-before-seen footage and plenty of interesting facts! The Gold Coast Movie Locations Tour will be taking place on two weekends throughout the festival.

This year’s Gold Coast Film Festival will also bring a number of ‘movies under the stars’ showings to the parks and beaches of the Gold Coast. Celebrate dance in film at Giltrap Park in Kirra with Strictly Ballroom on April 20 and Happy Feet on April 21. Food and refreshments will be available onsite – just bring friends, family, and a chair or picnic blanket!

Lots more will be taking place for the 16th Gold Coast Film Festival including the Music and Movie Trivia at the QT Ballroom, Women in Film Lunch, and the annual SIPFEST on Surfers Paradise Beach. The full program for the Gold Coast Film Festival is yet to be announced!

The 2018 Gold Coast Film Festival will come to the Gold Coast from April 17 to April 29 – that’s 11 days of nonstop love for film!
