FIRST TIME ON THE GOLD COAST FOR FLICKERFEST!
Celebrating 22 years of short film excellence, Flickerfest Australia’s leading short film festival, will be hosted by The Arts Centre Gold Coast for the first time in 2013.
Flickerfest presents another award winning program of the best of Australia’s and the world’s short films, with the Best of Australian Shorts screening at The Arts Centre Gold Coast on Saturday 2 February.
Flickerfest remains Australia’s only Academy® accredited and BAFTA recognised short film festival ensuring that we continue to present a A-list class short film competition recognised amongst the best in the world.
A record 2300 entries were received for Flickerfest 2013, and only the top 100 shorts were selected in official competition, all handpicked to represent the most innovative, creative and cutting edge short films being produced in the world today. This impressive and unprecedented number of contenders from all round the world confirms Flickerfest’s reputation as Australia’s largest and most respected short film competition.
On Flickerfest's 45+ venue National tour, The Arts Centre Gold Coast will be screening an entertaining, inspiring and award winning range of highlights, giving local Flickerfest audiences the first look at the hottest short films in the world today.
For many films, the Flickerfest festival will serve as their world and/or Australian premiere whilst other films have already taken home some seriously prestigious prizes - the calibre of this year’s program is undeniable with several films screening at some of the world’s most prominent and revered film festivals including Sundance and Cannes.
The Best of Australian Shorts program provides a platform that showcases our amazing Australian filmmaking talents. The program is a special selection of short films from Flickerfest's five competitive programs in Sydney.
