The BIRRARANGGA Film Festival is a celebration of Indigenous filmmakers from across the globe showcasing their unique stories in Melbourne. 

The inaugural BIRRARANGGA Film Festival runs from Friday 26 to Monday 29 April 2019.

The 2019 BIRRARANGGA Film Festival (BFF) celebrates global Indigenous films that explore the curatorial themes of ‘Humanity through Family and Culture’.

First Nations' relationship to the image as a form of expression, particularly in Australia, is connected to thousands of years of cultural practices.

This Festival honors that history and acknowledges the contemporary currency of the moving image, of film, as an expression of the human experience.

Curated by Wurundjeri (Woiwurrung) / Yorta Yorta screen creative and actor Tony Briggs (creator and writer of The Sapphires), the festival will present over forty beautiful, raw, inspiring and heartbreaking feature-length and short films from across the world. BIRRARANGGA Film Festival features films from Australia, Canada, USA, New Zealand, Mexico, Russia, Greenland and Peru.
