Birrarangga Film Festival

March 23, 2023 - March 28, 2023

The Birrarangga Film Festival, a celebration of Indigenous films from around the globe, is returning to Naarm, from March 23-28.

Now in its third year, audiences can look forward to an inspiring collection of stories from First Nations filmmakers, screening at The Capitol, ACMI, Lido, Classic, Victorian Pride Centre, and Federation Square.  Tickets will be on sale from February 23, 2023.

Originally conceived by Wurundjeri/Yorta Yorta screen creative Tony Briggs (creator and writer of The Sapphires) and produced by Damienne Pradier, the Birrarangga Film Festival is a chance for audiences to engage with stories and ideas from Indigenous storytellers around the world. This year’s festival will feature a diverse collection of features, documentaries, and short films from New Zealand, Canada, USA, Norway, Sweden, Greenland, Mexico, Russia, Hawaii, and Australia.

Opening the festival will be Marie Clements’ Bones of Crows (Canada). Removed from their family home and forced into Canada’s residential school system, Cree musical prodigy Aline and her siblings are plunged into a struggle for survival. Bones of Crows is Aline’s journey from child to matriarch, a moving multi-generational epic of resilience, survival, and the pursuit of justice. This special Opening Night event will be held on Thursday, March 23 at The Capitol Theatre, RMIT. Tickets are on sale on February 23rd.
