Bold origins, unfolding futures: The second annual Queensland film festival

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


[Extract] On the fiftieth anniversary of the very first Brisbane Film Festival (BFF), and the twenty-fifth anniversary of the first Brisbane International Film Festival (BIFF), the Queensland Film Festival has returned to both pay tribute to its origins and develop its own history. If it seems premature for a festival in its second year to be getting retrospective, it’s worth considering the significance of this milestone, not least because Brisbane’s film scene seems to be built on heavy bits of damp timber, lugged and deposited over the years by a dedicated few.
