The Cottesloe Film Festival was launched in 2017 with the aim of bringing world-class cinema to the Town of Cottesloe. Also known as the CottFilmFest, the festival is held over three consecutive weekends in February, offering a variety of local and international films that will meet the desires of every kind of film lover. From 5pm each night, guests can enjoy live music and a picnic dinner on Cottesloe Civic Centre’s beautiful manicured lawn, whilst watching the sun set over the Indian Ocean. In addition pizza and John St Café’s highly-sought after Italian donuts and coffee will be available and guests can also choose from a delicious array of burgers, burritos and nachos from the street food gurus, Clean Tasty Dirty. Part proceeds from the festival are donated to the Cottesloe Coastcare Association, as well as North Cottesloe Primary School.
