The Adelaide Film Festival (ADLFF) is an international film festival held biennially in odd-numbered years in mid-October for two weeks, in Adelaide, South Australia, and recently with briefer events in intervening years. The ADLFF has a strong focus on local South Australian and Australian produced content, with the Adelaide Film Festival Investment Fund (AFFIF) established to fund investment in Australian films.

Established in 2003, it was listed in Variety's "50 Unmissable Film Festivals" in 2007.


An independently financed Adelaide International Film Festival had been held from 1959 to 1980.[1] The idea of a new film festival to stimulate the local film industry and celebrate the 30th anniversary of the South Australian Film Corporation was raised by South Australian Premier Hon. Mike Rann in 2002, and a director and board were appointed.[2] The Adelaide Film Festival Investment Fund was created to fund the Film Festival and other events.[1]

The inaugural Adelaide Film Festival was held from 28 February to 3 March 2003. It ran a programme of screenings, special events and forums in a number of cinemas across Adelaide.[1] Since then, the Festival has been held in 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2016 (a one-off "Rogue" event), 2017, 2018 and a "pop-up" weekend festival in March 2019.[3]

It was known as the BigPond Adelaide Film Festival, or BAFF, until 2011, as its main sponsor was BigPond (now Telstra Media).[4]

Since 2017, Festival events have taken place mainly at the GU Event Cinemas in Hindley Street, with some sessions at the smaller Mercury Cinema in Morphett Street.

Festival directors

Katrina Sedgwick was the Festival's founding director in 2002.[5][2] She had previously co-founded the 1995 Sydney Fringe Festival, was the Special Events Producer (1998, 2000) for the Adelaide Festival of Arts, and the Artistic Director for the 2002 Adelaide Fringe.[6] In 2007, Sedgwick introduced an international jury prize to the festival.[2] At the time of her stepping down from the role of Festival director in 2013, Sedgwick said that the festival was the first in Australia to introduce an international competition, and a production fund, and that ticket sales had grown by 20 per cent each year.[7]

2013 was Amanda Duthie's first year as Festival Director, after spending eight years at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and eight years at the Special Broadcasting Service during the 1990s.[8]

ADLFF events

2013: 10–20 October

The 6th Adelaide Film Festival took place from 10 to 20 October 2013. This was Amanda Duthie's first year as Festival Director (after eight years at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and eight years at the Special Broadcasting Service during the 1990s), having taken over from Katrina Sedgwick. Margaret Pomeranz and David Stratton served as the festival's patrons.

Scott Hicks received the 2013 Don Dunstan Award for his contribution to the Australian film industry.

The poster in 2013 depicted Screen Worship, which celebrates work for all screens—cinema, television, phone and computer.

2015: 15–25 October

The 7th Adelaide Film Festival was held from 15–25 October 2015. Amanda Duthie was again the Festival Director. On the opening night of the festival, Director and screenwriter Andrew Bovell received the 2015 Don Dunstan Award for his contribution to the Australian film industry.

The festival opened with Scott Hicks's documentary film Highly Strung, and closed with Paolo Sorrentino's drama film Youth.

More than 180 feature films were screened at the festival, 40 of which were Australian films, 24 South Australian films and total of 51 countries were represented at the Festival.

As part of the 2015 Adelaide Film Festival, a public art installation was presented, incorporating a Laneway Cinema in Cinema Place, showing moving image artworks, and a 'Reactive Wall', where six artists created 2D visual artworks live in response to content within the festival.

2016: October – "AFF Goes Rogue"

Having previously been held biennially, the Adelaide Film Festival went "rogue" in October 2016 with a "mini-festival" in an in-between year. The first of the works commissioned by the Adelaide Film Festival Fund was the Australian premiere season of Collisions (5–30 October). Then there was a free talk by Greg Mackie at the Adelaide Festival of Ideas on 23 October, and the events culminated in a 4-day mini-festival (27–30 October) featuring world premiere screenings of two films – Australia's first Muslim rom-com Ali's Wedding, based on the life of actor, writer and comedian Osamah Sami, and a special "work in progress" screening of David Stratton's Stories of Australian Cinema, directed by Sally Aitken[9] (later released as David Stratton: A Cinematic Life[10]). Other films shown were Gimme Danger, a documentary film about the Stooges, and a retrospective screening of Lucky Miles (2007).[11]

2017: 5–15 October

At the 2017 festival, the theme "Vive le Punk" celebrated the punk movement's 40th anniversary. It featured A Fantastic Woman, Call Me By Your Name, a set by Adelaide punk band Exploding White Mice and Ai Weiwei's documentary about migration, Human Flow.[12]

2018: 10–21 October

In April 2017, the Premier Jay Weatherill announced that a full festival, including new funding of A$1m for the ADL Film Fest Fund, would run again in October 2018.[13]

Hotel Mumbai, Can You Ever Forgive Me?, rock documentary Bad Reputation (about Joan Jett) and The Nightingale (directed by Babadook director Jennifer Kent) were some of the films shown.[14]

2019: 5–7 April Pop Up Event

In April 2019, a weekend "pop-up" event was held, to showcase Wayne Blair's romcom, Top End Wedding, and Adelaide filmmaker Sophie Hyde's Australian/Irish co-production Animals.[15]
