CFIFF aims to encourage diverse content from diverse creators. We are excited to invite you to take part in our second year and hope you'll continue to be involved for many years to come.

CFIFF runs film and screenplay competitions monthly. The winners of the monthly competitions form our annual finalists. The overall annual winners will be screened at our Awards Night at GU Filmhouse Cronulla, in South Sydney on the 23rd of November 2018.

FINALISTS
Monthly Finalists will be re-watched in October 2018 before our Live Event in November. ONE Finalist will be chosen as our Wild Card Winner and will be screened in November alongside our Annual Winners and be made eligible for our Special Awards.

  • Many thanks to the CFIF for awarding my Screenplay 'Aretha' as a monthly winner. I am thrilled with this recognition and appreciate the Judges support. I hope to attend the Festival awards ceremony and wishing everyone the very best. This festival is value for money. I do have one suggestion - it would be lovely to present the Monthly Winners with a Digital Certificate, it's always great to have them framed and displayed on the office wall. I would have loved to receive one. Maybe you guys will consider doing this? I would happily design one for you!
