If You Dig Short Films, Get Along to Flickerfest


It’s not often that short films get the platform they deserve, so we should thank our lucky stars that Flickerfest is returning for its 30th year.

The film festival that started out as a small local event in Balmain, Sydney back in the 90s, is now one of the leading short film festivals in Australia, and it’s returning to Bondi Beach this month for your viewing pleasure.

Screening more than 100 films from Australia and across the world, Flickerfest will be running from this Friday, January the 22nd until Sunday the 31st of January. Whether you want to laugh, cry, or just bask in the presence of being in a (socially distanced) crowd again, you should definitely head to Flickerfest’s website and pick up some tix before they sell out.

They’ve got all bases covered; from international entries, to homegrown heroes, documentary shorts, Indigenous shorts, LGBTQI shorts, odes to modern love, laugh-your-arse-off comedy shorts and more. Make the most of quasi COVID freedom and get to the movies.
