The festival is set to impress, presenting 100 short and feature length films from 31 countries, inspirational talks and workshops, and a special digitally remastered screening of The English Patient by award-winning cinematographer, Mr John Seale, who is returning to Noosa as the festival’s Founding Patron.

This year, all festival goers are entitled to 10 percent off the daily rate on Peppers Noosa Resort & Villas accommodation. Discounted accommodation can be booked at MantraHotels.com using the code NIFF2017.


As part of the partnership, Peppers Noosa Resort & Villas will host the festival’s Filmmaking Workshops over two full days, for business owners and aspiring filmmakers, from October 26 - 27.


A Filmmakers Meet-up will also take place at the resort’s onsite View Restaurant, for upcoming filmmakers to network with peers and industry leaders.

Earlier this year, the resort hosted the festival’s ‘Best of NIFF 2016’ special screening night, showcasing a series of short films and light-hearted entertainment on June 25, 2017.
