Join Hemsworth in endorsing the festival in the upbeat video, which he posted across social media platforms. The video went viral and within 24 hours Hemworth’s Instagram post had out-performed all previous posts.

Whilst Hemsworth was insistent that BBFF was the best film festival in the world, Hiddlestone says the Byron Bay event is “certainly the best film festival in Australia.”

“Their message is a sign of the global reach of the Byron Bay Film Festival. We’re passionate about creating a quality experience for our filmmakers and audience and as a result we’ve built a good reputation that’s grown through word of mouth, said Festival Director, J’aimee Skippon-Volke.
“It’s our 10th festival and we understand how important it is to evolve as an event.”
