Film Outreach Australia

More films for regional Australians


Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 Coronavirus and the temporary shutdown of Australia’s cinema industry and entertainment venues, Film Outreach is extending the shelf-life of all Celebration Screening kits to 18-months duration – including all kits already purchased. 

If you purchase a screening kit for Youth Week, Harmony Week, NAIDOC Week, or any other event, you may host your screening event at any time through to December 31, 2021. It not longer has to be within the normal date range. 

Please listen to public health guidelines provided by Federal, State/Territory, and Local Government when organising your screening events. 

As a small regional arts organisation team, we appreciate everyone who has continued purchasing screening kits from Film Outreach, ensuring that we can continue to deliver our service for regional communities into the future.  


Film Outreach Australia works exclusively for regional Australian venues and communities to help you build a film community in your town. Through our sister organisation, Screenwave – which organises the Screenwave International Film Festival (SWIFF) and Nextwave regional youth film development programs – we have turned the Coffs Coast into a hub of film and screen culture, and now we want to help other regional towns around the country.

You don’t need to have any experience in the cinema industry or even in screening films. We provide everything you need in one simple kit – taking care of the complexities of marketing, audience development, cinema operations, curation, licensing and distribution that go into running a film program. We are here to save you time and money – and to bring fantastic films from Australia and around the world to your community.
