Although Sunday is the final day of film festivities, Oct 26th is the opportunity to join us as we wind-down this year's BBFF with another Red Carpet Gala Party on Saturday Night, the best night for a party.

Each year, this red carpet event acknowledges and celebrates the creative spirit of all festival participants – including you, our much-valued patrons and supporters.

The Closing Night Gala gives you the opportunity to chat to that lauded director of your most loved film of the festival and enjoy a delectable menu from Byron Bay Catering while sipping on hand selected Zilzie wines.

People power and authenticity drive this dramatic study of the July 2018 rescue of the Wild Boars football team, trapped in the Tham Luang cave in northern Thailand. The situation had all the elements of a movie – a daring mission, impossible odds, and, most importantly, a happy ending. It’s this last detail that would seemingly hamper any film adaptation – how do you tell a story where everyone knows how it ends?

The solution is simple. Without comprising the inherent tension, Thai/Irish director Tom Waller focuses on the human element, showcasing a wide range of the thousands of people involved in the rescue. Several key participants portray themselves in this retelling, adding to its verisimilitude.

With Hollywood versions inbound, it’s appropriate that a Thai adaptation came first. This impressive film is likely to be the definitive realisation.

Walk the Red Carpet From 6.45pm
Film Starts 7.30pm
