The event is held in late October at the Gladstone Marina's open air theatre where a crowd of thousands from all over Central Queensland enjoy a weekend under the stars supporting filmmakers from the region and entries from all corners of the globe.
Shortlisted films are screened at the weekend event with a total prize pool of over $6,000 awarded between the winners of each category as judged by a panel of celebrity judges (actors, filmmakers and industry professionals).
The festival is open to any level of filmmaker, from amateur to professional and is supported by some of Australia's premiere filmmakers and industry companies.
We recommend you arrive early to lay out your picnic blanket for a stunning evening with family and friends celebrating a new and diverse array of filmmakers from Central Queensland to around the globe. Each person entering the festival receives a ticket for lucky door prizes including gift packs, meals and giveaways that will be drawn at the conclusion of the awards ceremony.
The Capricorn Film Festival is Central Queensland's first film festival, screening a selection of local, domestic and international short and feature films at Gladstone's Marina Stage, with prizes awarded to the winners, who are chosen by a celebrity judging panel. Bring your family and friends for a night of laughs and short films.
