Flickerfest – Electrifying Short Films!
Australia’s largest short film festival returns to HOTA in 2020. Flickerfest remains a platform for celebrating the most entertaining and innovative short filmmaking from Australia and around the world. Don’t miss this one-off chance!
Celebrating 29 years in 2020 Flickerfest is Australia’s only Academy® qualifying and BAFTA recognised short film festival and largest short film competition. After Flickerfest’s 10 -day festival at Bondi Beach in early January selected highlights are now on tour to over 50+ venues from Jan-May.
The Flickerfest 2020 programme was selected from 3,600 entries, from 100 countries, giving local Flickerfest audiences the first look at the hottest short films in the world today.
Best Of Australian Shorts
Flickerfest is thrilled to celebrate a diverse range of stories from across Australia that celebrate our unique identity and culture with our Best Of Australian Shorts programme, selected from 7 programmes in our Academy® qualifying competition in Bondi.
Highlights include: The delightful comedy ‘Chicken’ by Papuan-Australian director Alana Hicks; the moving drama ‘A Day In Your Life’ a meditation on homelessness, that is quiet, thoughtful and deeply human, and the multi award winning animation ‘Rebooted’ – It’s not easy for a movie-star to age, especially when you’re a stop motion animated skeleton monster!
