Flickerfest International Short Film Festival – Melbourne
Celebrating its 28th year in 2019 Flickerfest remains Australia’s leading Academy® Accredited and BAFTA recognised short film festival, ensuring that we continue to present A-list short film programmes recognised amongst the best in the world. Flickerfest is excited to be bringing its National Tour to Melbourne, showcasing the Best of Melbourne Shorts, with films hand-picked from the festival’s 2,700 entries. On Wednesday 13th February at 7pm, we celebrate the talents and hard work of Melbourne filmmakers in our Best of Melbourne Shorts programme, a selection of Melbourne gems from our Academy® Accredited Australian competition.
Highlights include: All These Creatures the winner of Palme d’Or at Cannes in 2018 and which was also awarded Best Editing in an Australian Short Film at the Flickerfest 2019 Awards ceremony. This beautifully crafted short tells the story of an adolescent boy who attempts to untangle his memories of a mysterious infestation, the unraveling of his father, and the little creatures inside us. The stunningly realised Troll Bridge, a live action/hand animated hybrid is a fifteen year filmmaking odyssey and a love letter to author Terry Pratchett. The beautiful documentary This Is Yarra takes us inside the South Sudanese Community in Melbourne as we follow Riyadh Aden and Deng Dut from the Yarra Wild Beasts as they prepare for the South Sudanese Australian National Basketball Association Tournament, with the hope of taking home their first trophy for the junior team.
The screening is followed by some delicious post-screening drinks & nibbles.
