The Virtual Indigenous Film Festival (VIFF) is an annual event held online during Reconciliation Week and will be happening May 26th-30th. 


Now in its fourth year, VIFF is on a mission to showcase the stories and raise the voices of First Nations people and create a space for open and inclusive discussion during a week of reflection and learning. 

This year, the festival features five award-winning Aussie films, including three full-length features, a collection of short films, and the first two episodes of the TV series, Firebite. 

Each screening is followed by a live Q&A session with special guest speakers, including some of the directors, producers, and writers of the films, and will be moderated by Yankunyjatjara and Wirangu woman, Shelley Ware.


What films can I catch?

There’ll be a screening happening for five nights during Reconciliation Week, from May 26th – 30th.

My Name is Gulpilil – May 26th 7pm AEST 

Firebite (Episodes 1&2)  – May 27th 7pm AEST

Wash My Soul In The River’s Flow – May 28th 7pm AEST 

First Nations Shorts  – May 29th 7pm AEST

Off Country – May 30th 7pm AEST 

If you can’t make any of these screening times, all five films will be shown again at 10pm AEST on the same day (but unfortunately you’ll miss the live Q&A!).

How much are tickets?

Has one of these films caught your eye? Or maybe you’re keen to check out a bunch of them. 

You can grab a single screening ticket for around $12, or an all-access pass to all five screenings for less than $30! Bargain!
