32-34 Mellor St, Gympie QLD 4570

The beautiful Civic Centre is right in the heart of Gympie, just up from the five-ways. Over many years it has seen rock bands, orchestras, comedians, school balls, catering for intimate gatherings and packed audiences of 800. Heart of Gold has been in the centre since the very start, and we couldn't think of a better place to be.

This charming old theatre fits 400 happy viewers, all with a great view of the huge 10m screen we set up just for the festival. Combine this with comfy seats and our incredible sound system - you'll realise the beauty of watching short film on the big screen.

Get cosy in our smaller theatre, designed for a more intimate viewing experience. This little haven plays host to our more experimental fare.

The social heart of the festival, this giant sunlit timber hall is always bustling with action. Stop by to watch a Q&A with a guest filmmaker, to grab a bite at our food stalls, get the kids creating with our family friendly workshops, or pull up a couch and chat with a friend about the films you've seen.
