Byron film festival spreads

The sixth Byron Bay International Film Festival will take place mainly in Byron but also in Murwillumbah and Lismore from March 2 to 12.

This year the festival expands to five venues spreading a whole world of film across the Northern Rivers. At festival HQ, the Byron Community Centre, there'll be 34 sessions of premieres, red carpet parties and discussion panels.

Workshops and some special screenings will be held in Byron's arthouse cinema Pighouse Flicks. There'll be films at Lismore's Birch Carroll & Coyle cinema and for the very first time a season in Murwillumbah's historic Regent Cinema.

Tickets for the opening gala night are on sale at for the early-bird rate of $35. The early-bird price won't last long though…
