It is with heavy hearts that we announce the postponement of the 2020 Whyalla Film Festival which was scheduled to go ahead this Wednesday the 18th of March. This is a decision which has not been made lightly, but given the current uncertainty surrounding this pandemic the risk of running the event is too high at this stage. The health and safety of our film makers, guests and supporters is of paramount importance to us and we urge everyone to stay safe during this time or uncertainty. Those of you who have entered films into the 60 Second Film Festival, do not fret! We will hold the screening and awards at a future date! In the extra time we have now found ourselves with we will be working to make the new event even bigger and more exciting for all of you. If you have already purchased a ticket for the March 18 event please get in contact with the Middleback Arts Centre during open hours (Wed - Sat, 12:30-8:30pm) Unearth Festival Middleback Arts Centre
UPDATE: The Federal Government is advising against 'non-essential, organised gatherings' of 500 people or more from Monday, 16 March. At the WFF we are not anticipating numbers of that capacity and will be going ahead. We will be putting in place some precautions to keep everyone safe and healthy in this turbulent time. Please feel free to get in contact with us directly with any questions or concerns.
The 2020 Whyalla Film Festival is so close we can almost taste it!
Australians produce 540kg of household waste per person, each year. That's more than 10kg for every single person, every single week. In the year to June 2017 Australia generated an estimated 67 million tonnes of waste. This year bring your own cup to the Whyalla Film Festival and do your part to help us help our home. Every gram helps - BYO tumblers with straws for soft drinks at the candy bar and grab a metal wine glass for that gin and tonic at our WFF Cocktail Bar.
