Castlemaine Documentary Festival

This year we turn 10!

Real Stories.
Real Issues.
Real characters.
Real conversations.

The Castlemaine Documentary Festival has been held annually in mid-winter in central Victoria in Castlemaine’s iconic Theatre Royal.

The Festival offers a curated program of superb Australian and international non-fiction films.  

Audiences are introduced to a series of fascinating worlds populated by enthralling characters through a curated program of superb Australian and international non-fiction films.

The Festival provides a rich, multi-layered experience and connects audiences with film directors and contributors through in-venue and live telecast Q&A sessions. The aim is that the discussions continue long after the credits have rolled.

Castlemaine is only 90 minutes from the centre of Melbourne.
