Welcome to the Bethany Arthouse Film Festival

In 2014, we are pleased to once again bring you five quality productions to celebrate our 17th festival in Geelong and our return to Warrnambool for a second festival.

The Bethany Arthouse Film Festival is our major fundraiser for the year and has in the past, raised vital funds for a variety of programs offered to the Geelong and Warrnambool communities through Bethany Community Support.


Research tells us that the earlier we work with children and families to develop their abilities through education and play, the greater the chance that we can reduce the impact of disadvantage.

Bethany delivers a range of programs and services in the community, both in and with schools throughout the region.
