2024 Film Submissions Now Open

Our Festival is in preparation for our 2024 event, and we are now accepting Film submissions via Film Freeway – https://filmfreeway.com/HeathcoteFilmFestival. For more information please see our Film maker submissions page for how to enter and terms & conditions.


Our 2023 festival was a huge success with over 200 people attending and we are pleased to announce the below winners of the Jury Prize and the 2 People’s Choice Awards. People’s Choice voting was fierce with 3 films equally tied for second place on Friday night and only 1 vote determined the winner – it was that close!

We had a great event in 2023 and are now preparing for our 2024 Event!
