​The Capricorn Film Festival is a not for profit organisation that discovers local, national and international cinema gems, and shares them with a diverse audience of film lovers.

The Capricorn film festival was established to encourage production, not just exhibition. Our event is not just about ‘showing’ films – it’s about ‘making’ them. We aim to provide you with the opportunity to showcase your work to as wide an audience as possible, and help you promote your career and film-making endeavours.

The event is held in late November where a crowds of thousands from all over Central Queensland enjoy four days of cinema, supporting filmmakers from the region and all corners of the globe.

Shortlisted films are screened at the event with a total prize pool of $4,000 awarded between the winners of each category as judged by a panel of celebrity judges (actors, filmmakers and industry professionals).

The festival is open to any level of filmmaker, from amateur to professional and is supported by some of Australia's premiere filmmakers and industry companies.
