On Sunday May 31st, WEFF will again showcase some of the country’s finest short films at West End’s Rumpus Cinema.
The West End Film Festival is unparalleled with its unique urban style and its focus on inspirational stories that explore community and identity. Now in its sixth year, it is one of the nation’s few festivals solely dedicated to showcasing Australian short films.
“It’s our sixth year and we have films from all over Australia, one of them was shot in Timor-Leste and another is set in Italy”, said Festival Director Mike Witt when describing the 2015 program.
The evening will deliver a colourful all-Australian line-up of comedy, heart-felt animation and sublime documentary and drama.
Mr. Witt said, “The judges were spoiled for choice and ended up choosing 19 strong films split into two sessions for this year’s festival.”
As well as serving up a great selection of short films, the festival will also feature the presentation of five $1000 awards for Best Film, Industry, Community, Indigenous Filmmaker and Best Animation.
Tickets are now on sale through the festival website; www.westendfilmfestival.com.au
The first session starts at 5PM and the second at 8pm.
WEFF will once again transform the urban space behind West End’s famous drinking haunt, The Rumpus Room into a pop-up cinema called the RUMPUS CINEMA.
