WSFF 2019
We are curating a 90-minute programme of entertaining and thought-provoking short films, documentaries, music videos and animations showcasing the unique musical, writing and film talents of WOllongong. WSFF promotes the craft of the storyteller, explores new media in visual narratives and is a celebration of the landscape, values and perspectives of the diverse local community.

Screening in November 2019 the festival is an exposition of the thriving Wollongong film and music scene experienced through the eyes of writers, film makers, music video producers and experimental narrators. It will elevate the profile of experienced local Producers, Directors and Cinematographers, and mine the rich seam of new artists bubbling under the surface.
