Magic Happens in the Dark

BBFF2015-Block-RGBThe 2015 Byron Bay Film Festival promises to be a magical experience which you are invited to share – a celebration of cinema alongside hundreds of other film-lovers and filmmakers from home and around the world.

Join audiences for this outpouring of creative wonder, sensory stimulation and mind-expanding – There’s nothing like  discovery.

The Byron festival is Australia’s largest regional film event: the 10-day program spans 220+ films from 35+ countries across 55 sessions and six venues. It is also home to the region’s most glamorous nights of the year, when international screen legends rub shoulders with dynamic industry professionals and film fans on the Red Carpet at our Gala Opening and Closing night parties.

It’s your opportunity to ditch the downloads, leave the comfort of the couch and be part of the fabulous fun of an international film festival – all in the glorious setting of Byron Bay, where the stars come to play.

Nothing beats being in the cinema hearing a filmmaker who has poured years of their life into telling a story – and then watching that story unfold on the big screen.

Your life will be enhanced, and probably changed forever.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
