200 films on show at Byron Bay International Film Festival

WITH more than 200 films from across the world and covering the most varied topics, the Byron Bay International Film Festival offers a generous variety of flicks to enjoy.

There are films by Northern Rivers filmmakers, editor's picks, animations, dramas, shorts and features, comedies, documentaries, surf flicks, dance films, environmental movies, and experimental and dance films.

The beautiful, the abstract, the ugly, the taboo and the unspeakable - they all converge on the screens of Lismore, Murwillumbah, Byron Bay and, for the first time, Ballina, this year.

The festival also offers an opportunity to bring out your inner movie star and walk the red carpet dressed to the nines, at two gala events.

The Opening Gala, to be held tonight at the Byron Bay Theatre, will feature red carpet treatment for patrons plus feature film Tony Benn, Will and Testament, a documentary about the famous and often controversial British Labor MP.

The Closing Gala, on Saturday, March 14, will feature Zen and the Art of Dying, by Byron Bay Film Festival alumni filmmaker Broderick Fox about Byron's deathwalker Zenith Virago.
