Glamping at the movies – over 1,000 patrons will have the opportunity to camp on-site and entirely immerse themselves in this unparalleled cinema event, which includes nightly red carpet events, glamourous parties, live music and a sailing regatta.
Cockatoo Island Film Festival is a showcase for foreign and local film productions, connecting Australian and International screen industry alongside a comprehensive program of panel discussions, forums and master classes.
Supporting the competitive section will be premiere screenings of major new releases, classic cinema, a program devoted to young people and children, a special program of low-budget indie works, as well as raucous, rowdy, and outrageous midnight screenings.
