Back for its third year, Winda Film Festival focuses on Indigenous film from across Australia and the world. With a growing scope, the festival is an important outlet giving voice to Indigenous stories and recognising the growth of the industry.

Winda – meaning ‘stars’ – is a word from the Gumbaynggirr language from the north coast of New South Wales. In Aboriginal Astronomy, we look to the stars for guidance, creation and for our ancestors. The logo is a star trail of the Milky Way which is seen across the Southern Hemisphere and also inspired by The Emu In The Sky dreaming as one of the creation stories that crosses the nations of Australia.
