About the Ozzie Awards
Last year was the first year of the Ozflix Independent Film Awards ("the Ozzies"), held at the Alex Theatre in St. Kilda, Melbourne, VIC on April 7th, 2018.
In 2019, the Australian Film Future Foundation will again hold the Ozzie Awards, proudly sponsored by Ozflix. The venue is yet to be confirmed. The event will again be held late March/early April.
The Ozzies celebrates not only the very talented and under-appreciated indie Australian filmmakers and actors, but is also a fun way to celebrate Ozflix's anniversary as an global service in providing Australian cinema to all audiences.
