Leading Melbourne short film festival Fitzroy Shorts will hold its very first short film awards event, the Fitz Awards, at the Fitzroy Town Hall on November 6th.

Taking place during the peak of the Australia film industry’s end-of-year awards season (between AFIs, and before the IF Awards), the Fitz Awards stands apart as the only awards event solely dedicated to short film, and arrives at a time when an unprecedented number of Australian short films are trail-blazing a path across the world, and arguably, surpassing our feature films in international recognition stakes.

Celebrating the achievement of short filmmakers who have screened with Fitzroy Shorts in 2004, the awards categories in the 2004 The Fitz best Short Film Awards are: Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Cinematography, Best Achievement in Editing and Best Achievement in Sound, with up to $5000 in cash and $4,500 in-kind prizes to be won.

Among the films nominated for a Fitz Award are many high profile Australian shorts currently achieving substantial recognition on the local and international festival circuits, as well as outstanding short films from the UK, USA, Canada and Germany.

All nomination details are available on the Fitzroy shorts website:

An awards night, screening and fantastic party set in the groovy surrounds of the Fitzroy Town Hall, the Fitz Awards will showcase our thriving, independent, ‘grass roots’ short film culture.
