FLICKERFEST 2017 - Directors Welcome
Welcome to the 26th Flickerfest International Short Film Festival. As we stride forward into another fun-filled and jam packed festival, I am thrilled that Flickerfest continues to be the most influential dedicated short film event on the Australian landscape.
Flickerfest continues its proud tradition of bringing world-class short films to Australia, 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.
