Screen enthusiasts will be delighted to hear that the Tasmanian Breath of Fresh Air Film Festival – affectionately known as BOFA – is back this year and it's set to sizzle with an amazing lineup of talent.
This year from November 7-10 2013 in Launceston and Hobart, media lovers will be able to enjoy this festival. Films chosen to be shown at BOFA tend to explore issues from a different perspective and tell original stories in creative ways – hopefully coming together to stimulate positive change.
Not only does BOFA celebrate the treasures of cinema, it also acknowledges television, internet, gaming and more – all with an aspirational and inspirational twist.
This year's lineup is incredibly exciting, with 30 wonderful films and documentaries, question and answer sessions, industry workshops, forums, debates, wining and dining and more.
One special event taking place this year is Tasmanian Action day on November 8. This will put films from around the world that relate to issues affecting Tassie on centre stage. After each film screening, there will be question and answer opportunities, speakers, audience participation and a chance to explore different audience reactions, views and perspectives. Perhaps you'll even stumble across the perfect solution to a given issue if you take part.
