Founded to foster artistic expression at the grass roots level, the Harmony Film Festival works to promote peace and harmony within our society through the medium of film. As Australia’s premiere non-profit film festival, the Harmony Film Festival has successfully created a platform for professional and emerging filmmakers to discuss social issues that are important and relevant in today’s world. Having a reputation for promotion of positive filmmaking and harmony the festival works closely with a number of educational institutions, universities and schools as well as local Governments and philanthropic organisations in Australia and overseas.
In order to develop and train budding filmmakers the festival organises annual film camps where industry professionals conduct various workshops in filmmaking and as part of its commitment to outback Australia the festival travels to remote and underprivileged communities where training in film and video is provided for the empowerment of Aboriginal teens. The festival is also an ardent supporter of the Harmony Day celebrations in Australia, providing screenings at various events throughout the country.
