Connect your brand with a creative and engaged audience

Held in May every year, the Festival kicks off with an Opening Night ceremony to rival the Festival De Cannes, with 3,000 guests descending on the stunning Palais Theatre for a screening of Festival highlights. 

Over the following week, St Kilda’s iconic Town Hall becomes a hive of activity and creativity. The Festival showcases the best and brightest short filmmakers in the Top 100 Competition Screenings, while Australia’s finest music videos are played on the big screen at the SoundKILDA competition screening and after party. Throughout the Festival, filmmakers are invited to network and explore their craft at a series of filmmaker development events. Then, on Closing Night, the Festival is wrapped up with an awards ceremony and Closing Night party.

The St Kilda Film Festival audience is smart, fun, creative and cool. It attracts more than 15,000+ of Melbourne’s most discerning film fans and industry practitioners each year, with almost 45% of our crowd aged between 25 and 45 years. They are curious professionals with a median income of $70k+, large social networks and active lifestyles. They could also be a fan of your brand.
