After 12 months scouring the globe for eye-opening, invigorating and cutting-edge films, the 8th Byron Bay International Film Festival (BBFF 2014) is once again preparing for thousands of film lovers, directors, producers, actors and other creative spirits from around the world to descend upon the breathtaking shores of sub-tropical Byron Bay and expand their worldview through a massive independent 10-day celebration of film.

So what can audiences expect in 2014? “This year we are looking forward to fabulous red carpet Opening and Closing Night gala parties, unique events that explore Byron’s way of life and an inspirational selection of panels and workshops”, says Festival Director, J’aimee Skippon-Volke.

"However, as a prelude we are also very excited to be hosting Byron Bay’s most romantic night of the year, as our iconic Full Moon beachside screening will be held on Valentine's Day - Friday 14 February 2014. We will be screening a selection of the best romantic short films from our past seven seasons. Thousands of people will join with picnics in tow for a free night of heart-warming cinema under the stars to the backdrop of the Byron lighthouse."

Famous for its surfing and laid-back, bohemian lifestyle, Byron Bay’s buzz during the film festival is infectious. A fun, friendly and inclusive vibe sees audiences and industry heavyweights mingling side by side at the BBFF’s sunset bar or the many great cafes and restaurants nearby.
