Step beyond the white line with with the inaugural Football Film Festival, which showcase stories of joy, grief, passion and emotion from the world’s game during October 2015.

Football tragics wake in the early hours to ride the roller-coaster of emotion with their favourite European team. Devoted parents navigate journeys to the park on Saturday mornings committed to a generation of children who aspire to emulate Cahill, Simon, Luongo, their heroes emblazoned across their backs. After a long week of work, entire communities come together to sizzle sausages, talk team tactics and officiate.

Now there’s a film festival both highlighting and catering to this passion. Find out more and view the program
