Gold Coast Film Festival 2019

Commemorating the changing film industry on the Gold Coast, The Festival of Film, Music and Dance (FOFMAD) highlights talented local filmmakers and a festival of music and dance that celebrates the greatest films of all time.

FOFMAD showcases the incredible Gold Coast Philharmonic Orchestra and Eisteddfod grade school bands performing musical themes from well-known films. Local dance groups will perform dance routines celebrating famous dance movies.

The event hosts two short film festivals alongside the Gold Coast Film Festival. SIPFest, or Shorts in Paradise Festival, will engage audiences with brief cinematic gems created by up and coming filmmakers from around the country and abroad. A panel of industry experts will judge the films. There will be eight categories and prizes.


B.OLD features eight brilliant filmmaking teams who have been given $10,000 grants each to produce a short film that invites discourse on perceptions about growing old.

Capping off the weekend, feature films with a dance or Australian connection will be shown at our giant outdoor cinema on Surfers Paradise beach for everyone to enjoy. So head over to Surfers Paradise Beach and enjoy two great days and nights out to celebrate film.
