[ADVERT]No one needs an extra excuse to visit Byron Bay, however their International Film Festival could be added to the list of stunning beaches, amazing food, vibrant markets and a region just buzzing with creativity. Over ten days, 200 feature films, documentaries, animations and short films from over forty different countries will screen across several venues in the Byron Bay area. 2013 marks The Byron Bay Film Festival's seventh year of bringing a range of cultural, artistic and environmental films to the region. Throughout the festival, many unusual and interesting films are scheduled, as well as an array of workshops, masterclasses and panel discussions (please check the website for details).
