Who Are We?

Run by a team of passionate volunteers the festival screens a combination of local and international talent, giving filmmakers a chance to showcase their talent in the only Australian festival of its kind.  The Great Barrier Reef Underwater Film Festival delights those who love to explore the underwater world, appreciate nature and have a passion for world-class imagery. The event is staged by a volunteer committee and run as a not for profit organisation, giving back to the local community.


Formally known as the Cairns Underwater Film Festival. We have had an official name change to "Great Barrier Reef Underwater Film Festival."
