Flickerfest boasts over 2200 entries this year, with just over 100 being selected for official screening; a testament to the international appeal of the festival, and the huge interest it draws from the filmmaking arena.
â€œIn 2015 we will screen 20 different short film programmes during our ten-day festival season. Apart from our 14 competitive programmes consisting of 5 International, 7 Australian and 2 DocumentaryÂ in competition, we also celebrate shorts with environmental themes in our GreenFlicks competition, and productions from Primary and High School Students from across Australia in FlickerUp; which is sure to again showcase some extremely accomplished short films from our future cinema stars of tomorrow!â€ (Bronwyn Kidd, Festival Director)
