FLICKERFEST INTERNATIONAL SHORT FILM FESTIVAL - BONDI BEACH, AUSTRALIA
Flickerfest screens the best short films from Australia and the world in a unique and relaxed summer environment, under the stars at Australia’s famous Bondi Beach. After the Sydney festival Flickerfest tours to 31 venues around Australia. As Australia’s only Academy® accredited short film festival Flickerfest celebrates the latest in cutting edge shorts from around the world.
Flickerfest International Short Film Festival
Flickerfest began as a small local festival at the Balmain High School in 1991. Over the last 20 years it has grown to become Australia's only competitive International Short Film Festival with entries coming from filmmakers across the globe.
Flickerfest is considered in international circles as the leading Australian competitive short film festival and increasingly filmmakers view it as one of the main festivals on the world circuit. To maintain this high standard each year the festival director visits festivals around the world seeking new films most of which have not been seen in Australia.
In 2003 the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science elected to recognise Flickererfest as a qualifying festival for the Best Short Film and Best Animation categories of the Academy® Awards. In 2010, Flickerfest was also recognised by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), making films from the UK that won at Flickerfest, eligible for a BAFTA nomination. We are the only short film festival in Australia with BAFTA and Academy® accredited status.
The honour of Academy Award® accreditation will guarantee Flickerfest's international profile for many years to come, whilst also ensuring greater opportunities for our Australian short film makers internationally.
Flickerfest's national tour has become a very important part of the festival and started in 1995. The tour takes the main competitive programmes and some Special sessions to many regional and metropolitan areas, which rarely have an opportunity to view this collection of the best of the world's short films. The difference between Flickerfest and other film festivals is that Flickerfest is acknowledged as a quality arts event. Each year we screen Academy Award nominated films plus many other internationally award-winning films.
Thank you to all our sponsors, participating filmmakers and to you our audience for supporting Flickerfest as we look forward to a fantastic year in 2011.
