Your boyfriends Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston and Idris Elba think this is Australia's best film festival

Move over Sydney Film Festival. Not today, Melbourne International Film Festival. Take a hike, Tropfest. All your celebrity boyfriends (and until recently Taylor Swift's actual boyfriend) have spoken. 

And they say the best film festival in Australia is... Byron Bay International Film Festival. 

Hemsworth is a Byron native, and he's made it clear he doesn't particularly care for Cannes, Sundance or Toronto International Film Festival either. In a video on his Instagram, he declared BBFF (that's Byron Bay Film Festival, not Best Boyfriends Forever), the world's finest. 

Hiddleston was the one who decreed it "certainly the best in Australia" (MIFF, SFF – burnt). Meanwhile Idris Elba (who let's face it, is the pick of this very hunky bunch) just looks pretty uncomfortable throughout.  

We're not saying the Hemsworth clan got their celebrity mates well-oiled on Fourex then busted out the camera without warning, but you can sort of see it, can't you?

The festival will kick off in just over a month, on the October 14. Want something closer to home? The Italian Film Festival begins this Thursday.
