Reaching 20 festivals is a milestone worth celebrating. Starting in 1996, the festival only missed one year in 2002 when it transitioned to an incorporated entity. From its very first year, CIFF has grown and grown to become the event it is today – Canberra’s preeminent film festival.
To celebrate #ciff20, we need your help! We are on the hunt for old programs, posters, flyers, stickers, news clippings, photos, and whatever else we can get our hands on. There’s a few things here at CIFF HQ but nowhere near as much as we’d like.
These findings will help us in a number of ways. Some will be photographed and shared on social media, some may be framed and documented in our anniversary exhibition at the NFSA.
If you think you might have something of interest, please message us through the Contact page. Even if it’s just a memorable moment from a festival years ago, we would love to hear it.
