Welcome to the 2017

Bethany Arthouse Film Festival


In 2017 we mark 20 years of sharing great films with the Geelong community, and 5 years in Warrnambool.

This year we have selected an exceptional program of contemporary films, showcasing some local gems as well as foreign stunners. Representing diverse cultures and genres, the carefully curated program will challenge and delight, entertain and captivate.

We are delighted to be welcoming some special guests to Geelong this year in celebration of our 20 year anniversary. Bentley Dean, Co-Director of "Tanna", and a crew member from "Monsieur Mayonnaise" will conduct audience Q&A sessions following the screenings of their films.

The Bethany Arthouse Film Festival is our major fundraiser for the year and raises vital funds for the important work we do in the community. We look forward to your support!
