Melbourne Lift-Off Film Festival

Australia has, for many years, cultivated some of the best independent work the market has ever seen. From filmmakers to actors, Australia has exported some of the best talent, and arguably some of the most imaginative work for generations. The Lift-Off Film Festival Network see moving a festival to Sydney as the perfect bridge between entry level work and full professional status.

An instantly romantic and exciting destination for people from all around the world to screen their projects. Sydney is one of the most culturally diverse and happening cities on the globe. Therefore, Lift-Off is proud to now have Sydney Lift-Off Film Festival there to catch the cream of Australian talent and to showcase the best the globe has to offer.

Not only is our festival a global showcase for filmmakers looking to take that next step, we provide a free service where we take your work to the major film markets AFM, Cannes, EFM etc... All with the aim of getting your work acquired by distributors.
