An important and unique part of the Adelaide Film Festival, the Curate Your Own Festival program brings mini-international film festivals to country towns.

Unique in Australia, Curate Your Own Festival builds screen culture in regional towns by developing local curatorial skills.  Every Festival, AFF invites four emerging regional curators to spend four days at the Festival to select films to take back to their town. Find out more about the program here.
