Goatfest is shaping up to be a good one this year with a bunch of quality films in already - there's Dave Jones' amazing animation of The Rhyme of the Ancient Merino, which was featured in one of the past goatfest posters.
A typically classy production by Simon Carter of Monique on that amazing looking 32 in Verdon she did recently (on the cover of the last Rock):
Some excellent sequences (and screaming) from The Ogive (if you don't know it, it's a 10m gr28 roof crack/trench/wierdness at Bundaleer in the Grampians)
(those pics are not from the film, which is not black and white, but what the hell.)
A thoughtful and beautifully shot doco "Lines of Flight" which is a reflection on the release that gritstone soloing provides, in a historical context.
Simey is making a doco of the Chockstone inspired trip to Stradbroke island, which sounds cool, and Wendy has made a telling doco on the seriousness of Duck's Disease (when your bum is too close to the ground due to insufficient leg length). Don't be fooled by the 4 kneepads and stuffed wombat, this is a serious film about a serious topic.

... First wombat I have seen with a tail, but, yes, it was a good fun to watch vid. Thanks for posting.
For those of us who unfortunately could not attend Goatfest this year, is there any chance of further link-posts to other entries, particularly simey's one (that I heard was a classic), of Clinton's Stradbroke-Tyro?
