Byron Underground Film Festival 2021 Opening Night


Terror Nullius

55 mins | AUS | Radical mashup comedy
Dir: Soda_Jerk

Terror Nullius is a collage of Australian films, splicing together historic sound and vision with a streak of malicious humour.

It’s described as “a political revenge fable which offers an un-writing of Australian national mythology”, but what makes it the perfect opening film for the Underground Film Festival is its notoriety that major investors withdrew their support during the films world premiere, stating it to be “too controversial”.

Dir: Sonia Bible

The Byron Underground Film Festival is one of Australia’s newest film festivals, focusing on innovative, experimental, independent and ground-breaking cinema from around the world.

As one of the only regions of the country which has remained relatively Covid-19 free over the last year, we are looking forward to celebrating the cinema experience without the risks associated with holding in-person events in major cities.​

Byron Bay and the nearby Gold Coast has recently become the centre of much activity in the Australian film industry. The festival has tapped into this growth through our celebration of new independent cinema culture. As a popular travel destination, we plan to position our festival as an attractive option for the festival circuit which filmmakers, critics, distributors and audiences can visit without the risks of Covid.
