The Oz Indie Film Festival has been conceived to celebrate the very best of Australian and International independent film making. At a time when movies are becoming more and more programmed by market research, demographics and comic books and computer game sales, is has never been more important to discover and foster new brave independent and adventurous visionaries dealing with life in the modern world, be it in a serious thought provoking style or in a satirist humorous way.

Art should be open minded and stimulate healthy debate and thought. Proudly, we have no other restrictions on your work. [...]
