About RGFF

Started in 2014, The ReelGood Film Festival now enters its eighth year!

Growing from a small night of watching shorts with mates, to a full blown day of festivities, RGFF has brought a unique take on the short film festival; snappy 25 minute sessions followed by a 35 minute break to do as you please - drink, eat, boogie, then repeat.

A proud supporter of Australian filmmakers, this year RGFF will showcase 25 short-films from some of Australia's most talented and upcoming filmmakers.

Last year we said farewell to festival founder John Roebuck, and we now welcome our new programming director and RGFF film-maker alumni, Jacintho Muiños.

This year we also welcome Sarah Hickey who joins the ranks with Blake Curtis and Darius Family to form the new RGFF operations team.

Spccial thanks to Malwina Wodzicka who edited this year's awesome trailer which you can watch here.

Unfortunately the films do not have captions available.
This is regrettable and we intend to bring captions back in 2022.
