Colourfest is Australia’s Multicultural Film Festival focusing exclusively on culturally diverse Australian stories.
Portrayal of culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) Australians on screen is either limited or skewed towards negative representations; Colourfest challenges such negative representations, and showcases a more authentic and inclusive image of Australians as a nation of diverse faces.
In 2013 Colourfest takes a big leap by aligning itself with Harmony Day, showcasing the best multicultural cinema in a number of local government areas across Australia.
