In 2015 BBFF created one the first Virtual Reality focused programs to be supported by the Australian Federal Ministry for the Arts. Ncube8 provides Filmmakers, Photographers, Artists, Creative Practitioners and the General Public the opportunity to engage with Virtual Reality software and hardware in order to explore their creative and experiential potential.

We will once again run VR workshops and exhibitions at BBFF2017 and are also calling out for 3 artists to work with on a 2 day intensive during BBFF2017.

Our Family Friend Shorts Session is always a hit for Families with kids of all ages.
