The Capricorn Film Festival is on once again at the end of this month (28th and 29th October), and we have the exclusive on the guest judges that will be visiting Gladstone to lend their expertise to the event.

The annual #capfilmfest gives residents the chance to support filmmakers from around the region and from all over the world. It also allows for local filmmakers, seasoned and beginner, to enter their short films into the competition.

This year, presenter and host for Saturday Disney and Network Seven, Teigan Nash will be the MC for the festival. Guest judges for the weekend include Charlie Clausen and Gemma Lee, Mark and Lizzi Morrissey, Benson Jack Anthony and Melina Vidler.
