A lot has changed for the Stage One International Film Festival since it’s conception. Now on it’s own feet and becoming it’s own entity SOIFF is indeed a fully fledged Film Festival. Allowing the festival to partner with the film industry as a beacon of light shining for Australia’s local production houses, agents, filmmakers, investors, celebrities, crew, talent and all involved in the building and promotion of Screen Culture in Australia.
SOIFF is a prestigious red carpet black tie gala event unlike any other in Australia. A short film festival showcasing remarkable talent from Australia and abroad combining the film, music and fashion industries. The combination of these industries is one of our unique differences and will be more important come the 2017 event as we will be expanding to all 6 states and 2 territories in Australia.
In its second year running, the 2016 Stage One International Film Festival (SOIFF) has a unique opportunity for your organisation to connect with up to 1000 engaged consumers from a wide range of industries. The event is hosted at Warner Bros. Movie World on the Gold Coast and is proudly supported by Screen Queensland & the Gold Coast City Council.
Headlining the 2016 event is THE POTBELLEEZ, a three piece Irish-Australian electro-house and dance music group best known for their hit song “Don’t Hold Back” the theme song for Jeep. The night will host VIP’s from the music and film industries.
Not only will this event have major media coverage, it will be live streamed to thousands of people through a team from Sydney with Fox8 in talks to stream the 2017 festival in an Australia wide collaboration. Our red carpet is nearly 500m long, lined with gorgeous cars,
Lamborghini’s, Ferrari’s, Bentley’s, Rolls Royces and Porsches etc. Including the Batmobile!.
SOIFF have been working very hard to secure some amazing VIP guests and can’t wait to release their involvement as they get closer to the Festival. Please stay up to date with all our updates via our social media profiles.
