We can't wait to be able to share this amazing program of content with you all, so keep your eyes peeled for our new screening dates!
- Michal Hughes (festival director)
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!
