Colourfest Film Festival

Multicultural Film Festival: short films.


Colourfest is Australia’s Multicultural Film Festival focusing exclusively on migrant and diasporic stories. Colourfest was conceived as a response to the lack of cultural diversity on Australian screens.

The seond stream of films we showcase is LGBTQI stories from across the world, celebrating gender and sexual diversity.

Selected films screen in 30+ venues across Australia, and are stocked in libraries across the country.

Films selected for screenings will receive payment as part of the screening license.


There are no awards or prizes, the films selected for screening receive a payment, as the license to screen includes the inclusion on a DVD for public library use.


  • Colourfest currently only accepts SHORT FILMS produced in the last five years, with a limit of 20 minutes. 
  • If your film is just a little over or older, contact us so we can evaluate it's suitability.
  • Submission via Filmfreeway.
