A line-up of some of the world’s best feature films and documentaries will headline the Tasmanian Breath of Fresh Air Film Festival in November.
On Tuesday, Launceston mayor Albert van Zetten unveiled the official program for the 2016 film festival.
Now in its seventh year, BOFA Film Festival will screen 37 films across four venues at Inveresk from November 10 to 13.
Opening night is set to be full of glitz and glamour, as organisers roll out the red carpet for a screening of Paolo Virzi’s Italian, comedy-drama fresh from the Cannes film festival.
Festival director Owen Tilbury said BOFA is now recognised as a significant event on the Australian film festival calendar.
“Attendance has increased five-fold since we opened and we’re confident that this strong program...will attract even more Tasmanians and interstate visitors.” Throughout the festival there will be film making master-classes and a Smart City Action session, as well a vibrant festival lounge offering locally sourced food and drinks.
