collaborate with FRESHFLIX
Since it’s inaugural event in a cliffside backyard in Freshwater, Freshflix has run eleven pop up film festival events, including two Emerging Film Conferences, in unique locations in Sydney, Wollongong, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Freshflix exists to;
- Support emerging filmmakers in the early stages of their career
- Promote diversity within the Australian film & screen industries
- Contribute to creative screen culture and alternative nightlife in our cities
- Have a bloody good time
Freshflix events are a deliberate step outside of the traditional film festival format, by showcasing quality film talent in breweries, warehouses, cellar doors and creative spaces. With a solid dose of live music, live art, good food and drinks, handcrafted awards and a seriously laid back attitude, a Freshflix night is a party with your new best friends, with excellent films as a bonus.
Our event attendees are typically 18-45 years of age and consist of filmmakers & industry professionals, local creatives and community members with an interest in film, arts, culture and alternative nightlife.
- Strong female presence with 55-65% female attendees at events and 54% female followers on social media
- 30% event attendance and film submissions from Australian film students
- Broad online presence & reach: film submissions from 60+ countries, and events attended by interstate and regional Australians
- Writers, Directors and film professionals in the early stages of their creative careers
