Lorne Film 2015 Director’s welcome.

Greetings and welcome to Lorne Film 2015 – our 3rd annual festival planned for this coming November. Lorne Film 2015 sees the launch of our theme – ‘Making Waves’ – referencing our growing commitment to screen quality films featuring surf and/or ocean related themes – along with a selection of outstanding films from a variety of genres. 

Our filmmaker connections have proved an outstanding source of leads – pointing the way to some amazing content from here and abroad. Several exciting projects have landed in our collective lap with new filmmakers finding their way to us as the word spreads regarding Lorne Film.

Our Making Waves theme also highlights Lorne Film’s commitment to agitating for a positive rethink within the Australian film industry – to question the status quo, as we seek to lead reform. 

We expect this may raise a few eyebrows and create a few waves – but what better place to plant the seeds of change than the fertile ground that is Lorne – with several groundbreaking events planned for Lorne Film 2015.

So we invite you to join the growing Lorne Film community – filmmakers, patrons and loyal volunteers – as together we continue to grow what will become an iconic international film event.

Lorne Film 2015: Making Waves. We look forward to seeing you there.
