Inner West Film Festival - EOI Now Open

We are looking for Expressions of Interests (EOIs) from suitably experienced cultural organisations or businesses to deliver an Inner West Film Festival.

Supporting creativity and cultural sustainability is extremely important to Inner West Council.  Arts and culture are the engine for our economic and social life and together we share a creative identity. The Inner West is celebrated for its independent and dynamic creative sector, and the significant cultural contribution it makes locally, nationally and internationally. Inner West Council is committed to keeping culture at the heart of our people and places and providing leadership on urban cultural sustainability and equity.

The  Inner West Film Festival will contribute to the Inner West’s reputation as a vibrant hub of creative and cultural activity.   The aim of the festival is to:

We will provide up to $50,000 + GST in funding to the successful applicant as well as Council staff collaboration.  Inner West Council will be the major partner for the festival.
