FRIDAY 8 SEPTEMBER
6.30pm

'Shorts By The Sea'

As a first for GBRFF, we'll be screening a range of short films at the old barge ramp in Geoffrey Bay - just a short walk from the main festival. Set by the sea and under the stars with a bar and food available, you'll be able to enjoy the outdoors, (and the friendly rock wallabies) with the lapping of waves and the lights of Townsville in the distance.
