Hence I'm delighted to hear that Flickerfest now in its 22nd year has hit the road for a massive 46 venue national tour, visiting all states and territories across Australia, after wrapping up its hugely successful 10 day Sydney festival.
The Flickerfest National tour screens a selection of the most entertaining, innovative, inspiring and award winning range of shorts, handpicked as highlights from a record of 2300 entries received and 116 films officially selected for the Flickerfest Australian competition 2013. Many of these films are world or Australian premieres, giving local Flickerfest audiences the first look at the hottest and latest short films.
This Wednesday Flickerfest is coming to Melbourne with a special Made in Melbourne programme, showcasing exceptional local shorts selected from the Flickerfest official Australian competition, screening alongside highlights of International Award Winners.
YardbirdIncluded in the films that will be shown at the Melbourne event is Yardbird, winner of Best Australian Film at Flickerfest 2013, (Academy® Accredited). Shot in Ballarat, the masterful film was directed by Michael Spiccia, written by Julius Avery and produced by RMIT graduate Jessica Mitchell.
After the Melbourne screening guests are invited to a fully catered afterparty, pretty sweet uh?
As a lover of short films I'm really looking forward to seeing these outstanding shorts on the big screen.
