Best short films
CELEBRATING 25 years of hot shorts, Flickerfest is Australia’s leading Academy Accredited and BAFTArecognised short film festival – and it will be heading to the Whitsundays this April.
Now touring Australia to more than 50 venues, Flickerfest is giving local audiences a first look at the best short films in the world today.
Flickerfest is excited to be bringing the National Tour back to the Whitsundays, with two wonderful programs of short films that will screen on Friday, April 8 and Saturday, April 9 at the Airlie Beach PCYC.
Friday’s screening features the hugely popular Best of Australian Shorts program, which includes a range of fantastic new short films with highlights including Nan and a Whole Lot of Trouble, written by Queensland award-winning writer Sue McPherson, and Ernie Biscuit, a clever animation by Oscar winning filmmaker Adam Elliot.
Also showing is The Meek, written and directed by Queensland’s Joseph Brumm, featuring a beautiful score by The Cat Empire’s Ollie Mcgill.
The following day will see the Short Laughs comedy program, sure to keep you grinning. Highlights include the gorgeously shot and very funny Slingshot – this year’s Flickerfest winner of the Academy Accredited Virgin Australia Award for Best Australian Short Film.
Plus the hilarious Satan Has a Busy Tail, a wickedly fun, charming buddy comedy about grandparents, bereavements and a demonic squirrel.
Both programs have been hand-picked from the festival and are not to be missed.
