The Peninsula Film Festival returns next month with a star-studded judging panel and a new location for the popular Saturday event.

The three-day festival begins on Friday, March 5, at Rosebud Cinema with the screening of the powerful drama, Don’t Tell. The popular outdoor film festival has been moved to the Dromana 3 Drive-In on Saturday, March 6, and a filmmaking workshop with a focus on sharing mental health stories via film will be held at Rosebud Cinema on Sunday, March 7.  A special screening of Firestarter – The Story of Bangarra will also screen Sunday evening at Rosebud Cinema.

Saturday’s outdoor film festival is the highlight of the program, with up to 20 shortlisted Australian filmmakers showcasing their films in front of a panel of celebrity judges and film luminaries. This year’s judging panel includes Isabella Giovinazzo (Home and Away, Playing for Keeps), Lachy Hulme (Offspring, Romper Stomper TV series), Michala Banas (Upper Middle Bogan, McLeod’s Daughters), and Shane Jacobson (Kenny, Oddball, Brothers Nest). The judges will award cash prizes for the best short films as well as the winners of categories including Best Animation, Best Documentary, Best International, and the Woodleigh School Emerging Filmmaker Award.

Tickets for the Peninsula Film Festival, which is presented by Shine Lawyers, are on sale now and must be prebooked.
