Welcome to Vision Splendid Film Festival
The Vision Splendid Outback Film Festival is inspired by the Sundance Film Festival. It is an incorporated, non-profit organisation developed by the passion and drive of the Winton community and brought to you thanks to our visionary partners.
This iconic town in the heart of the Australian outback is the birthplace of QANTAS. Its reputation as “Hollywood in the Outback” is emerging with several major film productions including Nick Cave’s Proposition and Ivan Sen’s Mystery Road and Goldstone being filmed here.
Winton is an authentic outback Australian town and home to less than 1,000 people.
It has a rich history to be discovered as the birthplace of Waltzing Matilda and QANTAS and links to the Great Shearers’ Strike of 1891. Winton is home to Australia’s richest collection of dinosaur fossils which can be easily explored at the Australian Age of Dinosaurs and Lark Quarry.
The region is home to diverse natural history and spectacular landscapes: rolling Mitchell Grass Downs suddenly interrupted by mesa formations, starkly beautiful red earth and spinifex country, and Channel Country, undulating plains as far as the eye can see. This is big sky country.
