Capricorn Film Festival director Luke Graham has confirmed the popular festival will relocate from Gladstone to Yeppoon in 2018.

In line with this announcement, both Keppel Coast Arts and Livingstone Shire Council have confirmed their partnership with the Capricorn Film Festival and will provide extensive support and funding for the 2018 festival program. It is envisaged a funding agreement will be organised with a five-year plan for the festival.

“We are very excited to be relocating the film festival to Yeppoon, whom has a passionate community of film arts lovers,” Graham told Cinema Australia.
“Though we have had great success in our previous location, with the continued growth of the festival, and plans to expand into a long form destination event for the region, we were on the look out for the right fit for our needs and found that with Livingstone Shire Council and affiliate, Keppel Coast Arts.”

As Central Queensland’s premiere Film Festival, CFF features master-classes, panel discussions and selected documentary, feature and short films in competition reviewed by a jury of film and entertainment professionals with the winners receiving cash prizes and trophies.

Capricorn Film Festival Inc is supported in part by grants from the Gladstone Ports Corporation Limited, Screen Queensland and the Regional Arts Development Fund and in part by the Regional councils of Central Queensland believing an investment in the Arts is an investment in Central Queensland’s future.

The festival will run from 23-25 November 2018.
