Open The Box Arts: The Splendid Film Festival

Experience the Splendor of Independent Film at Open The Box Arts' Splendid Film Festival.

Open The Box warmly invites film and art enthusiasts to the Splendid Film Festival on Saturday, September 23rd. This exciting event will showcase a hand-picked selection of boundary-pushing short films from international and local emerging talent.

Curated by acclaimed artist collaborators “The Splendid Sisters” – Melanie Young and Caroline Schanche – the festival aims to provide a platform for innovative works that fuse cinematography with choreography and evocative sound scores. The films will be screened after sunset across the grounds, including unconventional film settings like ‘The Splendid Hut’, ‘The Tunnel’, and ‘The Orchard’.



Attendees can look forward to thought-provoking films like “The Seven Rituals of Hesitance and Fortitude”, “Deep Time Moving” and “Incantations”. For the full list of films, click here!

Guests can explore and relax around fire pits with cocktails and food (included in the ticket price) before and after the screenings. The intimate, magical setting will make for an unforgettable night of film under the stars.



“I love everything The Splendid Sisters create, they are an inspiration. The Sisters have a knack for selecting films that come alive in the setting. Last time, watching the films outdoors under the stars was absolutely magical,” said a previous audience member.

Tickets to the Splendid Film Festival are limited and available at or on Eventbrite. Don’t miss this rare opportunity for a splendid film experience!
