Flickerfest International Short Films Festival

Flickerfest International Short Films Festival

Friday, 11 January 2019 until Sunday, 20 January 2019


The Coopers Award for Best Short Film
The Yoram Gross Award for Best Animation

Flickerfest continues its proud tradition of bringing world-class short films to Bondi Pavilion, celebrating and uncovering the most talented filmmakers the world and Australia has to offer.

The Flickerfest team and special selection committee watched and reviewed over 2400 entries from across the globe, of which just 100 will be officially screened in competition; confirming that Flickerfest continues to attract the latest in cutting edge shorts from the world’s most exciting and innovative emerging filmmakers for our Academy® Accredited and BAFTA recognised shorts competition.

The uniting force among the shorts screening at the 2017 Flickerfest Festival is their ability to push the conventions of film and narrative to deliver surprising, exciting and groundbreaking results across animation, documentary and every genre in between.

Once Flickerfest wraps up its 10-day celebration of short film in Bondi, we pack up all the highlights from the festival and hit the road on our 50+ venue national tour. It has been a joy to see Flickerfest extend its reach as the home of great short film across the country, and watching audiences warmly embrace the inspiring art of short filmmaking.
