Our annual FilmFest is a cinema and social experience. The buzz you get at an event like this isn’t something you replicate at home, and we are showing films most people normally wouldn’t get the chance to see.  We also provide a social setting for people to discuss the films so everyone can share in the atmosphere.

There will be a broad cross section of animation, comedy, romance and drama. Each short film tells its own very different story for viewers to appreciate and enjoy.Pic Row1

After leaving the inaugural Scone FilmFest 2009, actor Roy Billing said, “The Scone audience seemed to really connect with all the films. No one wanted to miss anything! A good night all round. My wife and I certainly enjoyed the hospitality and the opportunity to meet everyone.”

On Saturday night we roll out the red carpet with drinks and a delicious supper, before the program of acclaimed Australian Short Films.  Enjoy dessert and coffee afterwards, and meet our film guests.

Sunday morning please join us for a casual encore screening of our film program with a delicious morning tea available beforehand.

Due to insurance requirements, under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult.

Experience a film-lover’s delight, in the bustling country market town of Scone, in the glorious surrounds of the Upper Hunter Valley.  Visit for the day, or stay the weekend and enjoy world renowned thoroughbred studs, vineyards, Lake Glenbawn, and the Tasmanian Devil’s Ark.
