THE inaugural Islands in the World Oceania International Film Festival (IWOIFF) will be held later this month.

Festival director Larry Thomas said the screening of 46 short films and documentaries was for the general public.

"Regardless of different age groups, the short films and documentaries have something for each individual of which they can relate to," Mr Thomas said.

"The public loves going to the cinema but many people do not know that there has been a number of films made about the Pacific."

Mr Thomas said this was a wonderful opportunity for people to come and witness the films that did not make it to the commercial cinema but they were fascinating in their own way, which could inspire the audience in many ways.

"We are expecting a good turnout as we have reasonably priced the tickets.

"The tickets can be bought for $12 for students or $5 per day, $2 for students or as a weekly package at $25 for the week."
