The Byron Community Centre is our ‘Festival HQ’ – the beating heart of the Festival, right in the heart of the town. The majority of our films which have Filmmakers in attendance are programmed at the Byron Theatre, inside the Centre, allowing for interesting and interactive QandA sessions. The Byron Theatre Events Bar will be open for drinks and snacks from 4.30pm throughout the Festival. We’ll be running an Information Booth and selling tickets at the venue Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from Wednesday October 2 between 10am and 1.30pm and every day during the Festival from 10.30am to 7.30pm.

BBFF is excited to expand our screenings into the freshly reopened Palace Byron Bay. Palace is fitted with state-of-the-art digital sound and projection technology and is located just 300 metres from our ‘HQ’. In the evenings join fellow cinephiles as well as the talent behind the films in Palace’s BBFF Bar. BBFF tickets are available on-line and one hour before the film screenings.

30 Fingal St, Brunswick Heads

Pighouse Flicks has been a muchloved venue to watch films for as long as we can remember but it is about to undergo a metamorphosis and BBFF2019 is locals’ last chance to enjoy it in all its laidback glory, and perhaps indulge in a little nostalgic reverie.

Brunswick Picture House offers a unique surfside retro cinema experience along with a vibrant and charismatic mix of circus, cabaret, music and family-friendly entertainment. With a whimsical garden and quirky kiosk, the Picture House is dedicated to offering you something a little bit different and bringing its own brand of fun to a night out at the cinema.

The Green Room is a proudly all local bar and dining room in the iconic Beach Hotel and will play host to the Festival’s rock-out Music Video Showcase party. See the website and page 6 for more details of this very special event.
