27th International Short Film Festival! National tour: January – May 2018
‘NOW THAT’S A SHORT FILM’ HEADING TO THE GOLD COAST! ▪ GOLD COAST – THURSDAY 15TH MARCH, HOME OF THE ARTS (HOTA)
Celebrating 27 years in 2018 Flickerfest remains Australia’s leading Academy® Accredited and BAFTA recognised short film festival, ensuring that we continue to present A-list short film programmes recognised amongst the best in the world.
The Flickerfest National Tour is excited to be returning to HOTA (Home of the Arts) on the Gold Coast, showcasing the Best of Australian Shorts programme on Thursday 15th March at 6.30 pm.
The Flickerfest programme presents a selection of entertaining, inspiring and award-winning films hand-picked from the festival’s 2,500 entries, giving local Flickerfest audiences the first look at the hottest shorts in Australia today.
Highlights from the Best of Australian Shorts include the beautifully crafted and creative Australian animation Lost Property Office about Ed its sole inhabitant who in many ways is as lost as the items themselves, and was short-listed for an Academy® Award. The dramatic and inspiring Miro, an Aboriginal Western short film staring Mark Coles Smith; and the delightfully quirky and creatively animated Martha The Monster, starring the voices of actress Rose Byrne and her husband Bobby Cannavale. Screening alongside these amazing shorts is the charming Patty Lovesick directed by Gold Coast local James Fitchett about a guy who is allergic to his girlfriend! Also part of the programme is the heartfelt Mother, Child by Gold Coast raised director Tin Pang. It tells the story of a Mother and son who are reacquainted and forced to live together after the Mother has a stroke. Lawrence Leung (Maximum Choppage, Newton’s Law, Offspring) plays the son in a somewhat more serious role than his usual comedic offerings.
Don’t miss out on Flickerfest 2018 when it arrives in the Gold Coast at HOTA (Home of the Arts)!
