If locals ever needed another reason to marvel at the majestic environment of the Kimberley, they can stop wondering because the Kimberley Short Film Festival arrives in Broome on Friday

The collection of 26 short films showing off the Kimberley’s nature beauty and culture was doing the rounds in Joondalup, Mount Lawley and other Perth suburbs early last month but will arrive in town this week.

The collection includes footage of whales, snubfin dolphins, Rowley Shoals, Fitzroy River, corals and surfing in the region.

The free event is supported by The Kimberley — Like Nowhere Else alliance and Environs Kimberley, and expected to be held at Pigram Gardens Theatre from 6pm until 9pm.

EK director Martin Pritchard said the line-up documented the marine world, landscapes and people of the region.

“This is a real celebration of our region and a showcase of the nature and culture of the Kimberley,” he said.

“We are so lucky to be living in such an incredibly beautiful place and there’s a lot of people getting behind the push to make sure its looked after properly.”

Tickets are free; however, bookings are essential. For more information visit The Kimberley Short Film Festival – Broome on Eventbrite.
