We’re thrilled this year to offer two winners an overnight stay in the beautiful Captain’s Retreat, B&B, Apartment and Cottages in gorgeous Williamstown.                                                                      They recently won the 2017 Hobson’s Bay Business Excellence Awards Tourism (for the 4th time!) and also Win won the 2017 LTG Asia and Australasia Luxury Bed and Breakfast Award so you know your time there will be fabulous. 
You can enjoy staying in a beautiful renovated Victorian home or a self-contained cottage or apartment. All rooms come with an ensuite. Some have fireplaces, a private lounge and balcony. An overnight stay costs $190 – $280 per night, depending on the size of the room and number of people. Everyone staying in the B&B house receives a cooked breakfast. 
Situated two doors from the water, and in the heart of Williamstown’s great shopping and restaurant precinct, this is a great place to stay. 

We’re excited to announce Loop Project Space & Bar  is joining us as a sponsor.  They are offering a lucky filmmaker the use of their venue to host their own film event. 

They offer a unique cultural experience- come along to an ever-changing program of film screenings, audio visual performances, DJ based event creative forums or exhibitions. Alternatively, drop in for a casual beer or cocktail with friends- spaces can be reserved and alcove or lane way seating is also available.

The Setting Sun  Film Festival is a festival and competition where we screen great films made by adults and kids.  We screen at the fabulous Sun Theatre Yarraville. This year promises to be our biggest and best so far. We’re going from four days to five days. We’ve changed our format. Films made from 1st December 2015 – January 31st 2018 can enter as long as they are no more than 15 minutes long. We are introducing a feature film section, details to be announced at a later date. Our female, kids’, and summer night programs will be back to join our regular fabulous programs of great shorts from around Australia and abroad.
