Lorne Film 2016 Director’s welcome.

Greetings and welcome to Lorne Film 2016 – our 4th annual festival.

This year our theme is ‘Looking Forward’ – underlining our commitment to embracing the future of film in Australia – and to supporting and engaging with the filmmakers of tomorrow.

This year’s program features the work of several of these new filmmakers – along with our industry forum Lorne Thought: Going it Alone – celebrating the rise of the independent filmmaker in Australia.

This year also sees a record amount of entries to Lorne Shorts – our international short film competition. And of course we continue our commitment to bringing quality feature films to our patrons and the people of beautiful Lorne.

We invite you to once again to join our growing Lorne Film community – to celebrate all things film – and all things Lorne. Lorne Film 2016 – become a part.
