Festival Team

Starting with our love of film, and its ability to connect us as a community, we curate a program of new films and events that challenge us and provoke discussion. We endeavour to create something beautiful that inspires the community to support its growth into the future as a major festival for the Coffs Coast region.

VOLUNTEERS

SWIFF is made possible by the many hands of volunteers from around the Coffs Coast and further afield. Without them, the festival would not be possible. Our sincere thanks to all for lending a hand to bring SWIFF 2018 to the community.

COMMUNITY MESSAGE

Thank you to our audiences for helping to build up a film and screen culture scene on the Coffs Coast. It takes not only filmmakers and exhibitors, but a dedicated and passionate audience to make a film festival come to life. Thank you to everyone who purchased a ticket and enjoyed the 2018 festival.

GUMBAYNGGIRR ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

The Screenwave International Film Festival would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which the festival operates, the people of the Gumbaynggirr Nation, and pay our respects to their Elders past, present, and emerging.
