There are no prizes, there is no theme. We exist to promote filmmaking and film viewing around Dubbo, NSW, Australia and surrounding areas. We want to see as wide a range of films as possible, but we want all films to be shorter than 7 minutes for local films (4 minutes for secondary student category and 2 minutes for primary student category). Please note: the longer form category for local films is by invitation only and Other Australian and International category shorts can be up to 10 minutes.

The OEFF welcomes all genres including comedy; drama; horror; documentary; experimental; music video – really anything that is suitable for a diverse audience. In 2019, videos included a locally made Indian language music video, a couple of videos made by youth about mental health, dramas, a web series, short comedies and music videos.

This year’s festival will be held at the Dubbo Regional Theatre and Convention Centre for the first time on Friday, November 20, 2020. The OEFF this year is presented in partnership with the Dubbo Regional Council, and supported by the Dubbo Film Society. Tickets will be on sale from November 2.
