In this edition, we have also gathered three of our most thrilling and wondrous Festival film screenings for you. So if you are a movie lover, these are the ones you won’t want to miss.

And be sure to join our Perth Edition, just a week before the Festival kicks off, and catch a range of fascinating panel discussions of emerging and acclaimed authors from Indonesia and Down Under. If you can’t join us in person, all our events will be live-streamed.

We cannot wait to spend a four-day weekend with you, tackling big ideas and revelling in the power of words.

Don’t forget your Festival Pass. We’ve introduced new flexibility to our COVID policy so that you can book with confidence.
