The iconic town OF Winton in the heart of the Australian outback is the birthplace of QANTAS. Its reputation as "Hollywood in the Outback" is emerging with several major film productions including Nick Cave's Proposition and Ivan Sen's Mystery Road being filmed here, and producer Bill Leimbach commencing filming of the Australian epic feature film, Waltzing Matilda. Most recently the History Channel filmed a Texan documentary in the Winton Shire for a new mini-series. The Vision Splendid Outback Film Festival is inspired by the Sundance Film Festival. It is an incorporated, non-profit organisation developed by the passion and drive of the Winton community and brought to you thanks to our visionary partners.
