Festival of Film, Music and Dance - April 6 to April 7
The Festival of Film, Music and Dance is a celebration of all things film-related on the Gold Coast with incredible live music and dance performances to top it all off. Spread over two days, this unmissable cultural festival is a must-attend for filmmakers, cinephiles and festival-goers in general, where there’ll be a jam-packed entertainment program to catch on the breathtaking Surfers Paradise Beach!
Join in the huge celebration of the ever-evolving filmmaking industry on the Gold Coast and enjoy the incredible atmosphere that will come with it. The Festival of Film, Music and Dance is all set to be big, with the renowned Gold Coast Philharmonic Orchestra playing musical themes from all the famous movies that you know and love - live and on the beachfront. There’ll also be Eisteddfod-grade school bands and local dance groups performing the songs and moves from a number of iconic musical films.
The event will arrive in partnership with the 2019 Gold Coast Film Festival, with two short film festivals to enjoy throughout its duration. SIPFest - which is one of the region’s biggest short film festivals - will deliver 14 awe-inspiring screenings created by filmmakers across the country, which will be both judged and awarded with prizes. B.OLD will showcase eight productions by talented filmmaking teams about the concept of ageing. Both are not to be missed, and will be taking place on none other than Surfers Paradise Beach!
The Festival of Film, Music and Dance weekend will then conclude with two well-loved Australian dance films - Dance Academy: The Movie and Strictly Ballroom - offering cinephiles the chance to cosy up on the beach with loved ones, blankets and, of course, lots of popcorn.
Round up family and friends then head to Surfers Paradise for the unmissable and FREE-to-attend Festival of Film, Music and Dance, taking place on Saturday, April 6 and Sunday, April 7.
