About FFFA

FFFA returns from April 17 – May 10, 2024! 

This year, FFFA 2024 presents an eclectic program of 24 feature length films as well as a program of 14 short films from Australia and around the world, promising a kaleidoscopic showcase of the world’s most exciting voices in cult, genre, arthouse, and alternative cinema.  

Artistic Director Hudson Sowada said, "This year, we're proud to present 24 premieres, from the thrilling to the surreal, each film has been chosen for its unique ability to transport, to provoke thought, and to entertain. Our 2024 selection of films is a testament to the festival's commitment to showcasing films that are not only visually striking but also challenge our audience's expectations.”  

The festival returns to Ritz Cinemas in Sydney and Lido Cinemas in Melbourne, and for the first time a selection of FFFA titles will screen in Melbourne’s north at a new satellite venue, the Thornbury Picture House.
