Planning for the Port Fairy Adventure Film Festival continues to surge ahead despite the uncertainty caused by the COVID pandemic.
The festival is due to take place from November 11-14 at Reardon Theatre.
This will be the second staging of the festival, which made a successful debut in 2019, before being cancelled due to COVID last year.
The inaugural festival was the first of its kind held in Australia.
Festival founder and director Athena Morton said plans for 2021 were in good shape.
"We are moving forward with the best case scenario in mind but with contingency plans also in place," Ms Morton said.
"We are keeping an eye on restrictions and have some targets as far as capacity goes that will determine what happens.
"But at this stage it is all moving forward and our festival trailer will drop on our website and social media in early September, which is really exciting."
The build up to this year's festival will include full-length features each night of the week leading into the official start of the event.
The Friday night agenda will include a shorts program.
The festival has also welcomed the staging of the inaugural Port Fairy Marathon and Community Running Festival on the same weekend.
Ms Morton said like the adventure film festival, marathon running was very much a pursuit that pushes the limits, and would attract like-minded people.
