Clones Film Festival shows independent films to local audiences. A core part of the festival has been to provide a platform for film makers.

In 2013, the festival aims to once again host the following, features, documentaries, short films and school screenings. In the annual Short Film Challenge, teams of filmmakers have 48 hours to write, film, edit and screen their own short film, involving local members of the public in casting, location and other supportive roles. C.F.F will once again host the 'Francie' Awards on closing night with Audience Award and Jury Award for best short made during the 48 Hour Short Film Challenge.

The festival will also continue to engage film practitioners involved in all aspects of film and the target audience is as diverse as the films shown. There will also be a Festival Club with live music nightly.
