Welcome Message from Mayor Darcy Byrne

"Welcome to the second Inner West Film Fest." said Mayor Darcy Byrne.


"The Festival, founded by Inner West Council, has been established to showcase Inner West filmmakers and to celebrate the unique place of the Inner West in the history of Australian Film."


"So, it’s just fantastic that in its second year, it’s already doubled in length from 5 days to 10 jam-packed days of outstanding programming."


"This year, grab your popcorn, choose your seat and get ready for a feast of hidden gems, premieres and much-loved classics."


"There’s also so much more to enjoy with new events added to the line-up. Join the Film Trivia Night at Grifter Brewing Co, don’t miss two sessions of short films - many made by local creatives."


"Also taking the festival to new heights is the whole-hearted involvement of many local businesses. This year sees support from the likes of Unexpected Guest Distillery, Rock Posters, Reverse Garbage and SRL Management."


"It’s this support that really matters."


"The Inner West has always punched above its weight when it comes to creative work. When you combine the leadership of our creative film industry, local businesses and community involvement, we get an outstanding festival that’s cementing itself as a major cultural event on the calendar. Enjoy."
