The 2022 Adelaide Film Festival has broken all records!
With audience attendance up 13% from the last AFF in 2020 – which was also a record result – and box office 56% up on the last pre-pandemic festival in 2018, the newly annualised Festival’s expansion into multiple venues across Adelaide has proven to be a resounding success.
AFF 2022 saw the addition of new venues including the Capri Theatre, Her Majesty’s Theatre and limited presentations at Event Cinemas Marion, adding to existing venues at Palace Nova Eastend, Wallis Mitcham, Palace Nova Prospect and Odeon Semaphore with the aim of supporting screen culture across the city.
Mat Kesting, AFF CEO & Creative Director, said: “Audiences embraced the AFF 2022 program and demonstrated a clear desire to go out to the cinema. The record-breaking box office and attendance results reaffirm the desire to see films in cinemas and engage with courageous filmmaking.
“An extraordinary cross section of work from around the world was presented including a remarkable crop of new films from South Australia. We congratulate all the filmmakers!”
More details on the success of AFF 2022 will be released soon.
