Real Stories.

Real Issues.

Real Characters.

Real Conversations.


The Castlemaine Documentary Festival is held annually in mid winter in central Victoria (90 minutes from Melbourne) 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. 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.
