WHAT IS RUNNATION?

The RunNation Film Festival is the only film festival in Australia dedicated to showing inspirational running films from around the world. We don't focus just on trails, track, road or ultra running; we focus on human-interest stories that use running as their medium of storytelling.
 

The 2019 RunNation Film Festival will feature two world premieres among many other captivating, fast-moving and emotive short films. These films have been carefully curated with mesmerising cinematography and thought-provoking storylines, featuring heart-pounding races from the all points of view, from the elite athlete to the back-of-the-pack runner.
