Not just a Film Festival!

Experience the CoroCine Festival, a celebration of Coromandel's artistic talent and cinematic excellence! This inaugural event marks the beginning of an annual tradition that showcases the very best of Coromandel's filmmaking talent, promising a truly unique experience.

This year's festival features a wide array of themes that capture the richness and diversity of life in the Coromandel.

We are thrilled to provide a platform for both established and upcoming filmmakers who may have never shown a film before. The CoroCine festival will also be a place for artists who work in other media and may like to move towards sharing their work on the big screen. We hope it will be an ongoing and annual event that will catalyse filmmakers, artists and film lovers to come together and enjoy the best of Coromandel film. There is such a wealth of talent in the Coromandel, and it deserves to be celebrated.
