The Armidale International Film Festival was the brain child of a small group of foreign film enthusiasts in the School of Languages, Cultures and Linguistics (LCL) at the University of New England (UNE).

In 2004, they organised the 1st International Film Festival as their School’s contribution to the celebration of UNE’s 50th Anniversary as an independent university.

The success of this 1st International Film Festival led to the 2nd International Film Festival 2005 and the rest is history!

The organisers could not have succeeded without the fantastic help from the Belgrave Twin Cinema and Services UNE and our wonderful sponsors who are featured below.

The Organising Committee members are:

  • Dr Hilary Hutchinson
  • Ms Caroline Downer
  • Dr Linda Hess
  • Dr Martina Linnemann
