South Australia is well-known as the Festival State, and it is filled to the brim with creative people from all walks of life. It is only in recent years, however, that local, emerging and diverse filmmakers have had multiple spaces dedicated to showcasing their work. This rise in South Australian film festivals is a boon for both the film industry and film lovers alike.
The Adelaide Film Festival (AFF) is known for sharing South Australian talent alongside national and international films. However, it is often cited as the only film festival based solely in the state.
