Northern Territory Travelling Film Festival

The ancient landscapes of the Top End and the Red Centre transform into spectacular outdoor movie theatres this dry season.

Carry The Flag

The tropical oases, sunburnt country and otherworldly terrain of the Northern Territory will welcome the best of the silver screen between 21 May and 9 June when the Northern Territory Travelling Film Festival hits the road.

The cinematic roadshow stretches from the Red Centre to the Top End via the ruby boulders of Tennant Creek, the wetlands of Kakadu and the waterways of Nitimiluk National Park near Katherine, as well as screenings in some of the region’s most remote communities.

Each destination will entertain a 126-minute program of 10 short films that showcases the very best of Territory filmmaking, from Dreamtime stories and cultural documentaries to ‘croc-tastic’ comedies and ‘troppo-noir’ flicks, including films like Bakala (below) and Carry The Flag (above).


The NTTFF celebrates the distinctive brand of storytelling that’s unique to this part of the world, as well as the natural splendour that makes the Northern Territory such a cannot-miss destination.

View the full program at the NTTFF website, and check out the festival launch in Darwin on March 4.
