The Capricorn Film Festival is on again this coming October 28 & 29, with organisers expecting the event to be even bigger and better than last year. The event is not just about ‘showing’ films – it’s about ‘making’ them and providing the opportunity for people to showcase their work to a wide audience.

The event will be held at the Marina Main Stage and will host crowds travelling from all over Central Queensland to enjoy a weekend under the stars and support filmmakers from the region and entries from all corners of the globe.
