Monster Fest 2023 / 22 March 2023

October Dates Announced For MONSTER FEST 2023 Melbourne Festival

Melbourne, clear your calendar as MONSTER FEST returns to Cinema Nova earlier this year from Thursday 12 to Sunday 22 October.

Have you got a Short or Feature Film you wish to submit for consideration well good news as Submissions are Now Open.

Founded in 2011, Monster Fest is a mix of premieres, international festival favourites, challenging new discoveries, and curated repertory sidebars alongside filmmaker Q&As, panels and a special emphasis on supporting emerging Australian genre talent through the festival and beyond.

From its humble beginnings in Victoria back in 2011 at Cinema Nova to the present day with nationwide festivals in partnership with Australia’s largest exhibition chain Event Cinemas, Monster Fest has grown to become the country’s premier genre film festival.

More than a film festival though, Monster Fest is about engagement and a shared experience, uniting its audience as a community.

Monster Fest acknowledges the Traditional Owners of this country, pays tribute to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and gives respect to Elders past and present.
