Back for its second year, Winda Film Festival is a new and exciting film festival focused on Indigenous film from across Australia and the world. With a growing scope of Indigenous films, it is important to give a voice to Indigenous stories and recognise 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.
