AFF 2022 will begin by bringing the Festival to Marion for two special events! Join us at the SA Aquatic & Leisure Centre for a screening of the Spielberg classic Jaws – don’t forget to bring your bathers!

Later, we have the World Premiere of Ride – a film about the tremendous courage shown by South Australian BMX champion Sam Willoughby during his recovery from a shocking accident.

It’s time to venture back in the water.

In 1975, a young director named Spielberg terrified audiences so thoroughly that some couldn’t go near water again. Never say that AFF patrons aren’t thrill-seekers. We believe that the best way to savour the heart-pounding adrenalin rush induced by Jaws is to see it by the water. Watch the classic blockbuster while eating popcorn from the comfort of the stands, or while doing a lazy backstroke in the pool under the big screen as inflatable sharks help set the mood.

The inspiring journey of ability, disability, love and redemption.

Ride is the most inspirational love story you will see this year. It tracks the lives and careers of Sam and Alise Willoughby, two champions who fall in love and conquer the world of BMX. Sam rises from the suburbs of Adelaide to become a world champion. When an accident takes away everything they have known, Sam and Alise must dig deep. Ride paints a bold picture of re-invention in the world of disability.
