Flickerfest is returning to the northern rivers for its twentieth year to bring you the best short films from the Byron region, Australia and the World. A cinema-packed short film weekend at the Mullumbimby Civic Hall will be screening an entertaining, inspiring and award winning range of 30 Flickerfest short films over three nights from January 26–28.

Many of the films have been hand picked from 2,500 entries from Flickerfest 2018 in Bondi and for some it will be their world or Australian premieres.

Flickerfest Mullumbimby will also be presenting the best of northern rivers shorts at the Byron All Shorts finalist’s screening showcasing a wonderful new collection of creative shorts from our very talented local filmmakers. Byron All Shorts finalists will be announced this coming week.

Bronwyn Kidd (Flickerfest Director) says: ‘As Mullumbimby is our hometown I’m always really excited to be presenting these very exciting, entertaining and inspiring short films hand-picked for local audiences at our local tour event.

‘Our Mullumbimby Flickerfest is both a celebration of film and a great community networking event where people who love films and great stories can come together over the weekend and enjoy inspiring films from the northern rivers, across Australia and the world, encouraging both discussion and connection. I’m really looking forward to it.’

The Flickerfest programme includes the Best Of Australian Shorts and the Best Of International Shorts that are curated from the Flickerfest Australian and international programmes in competition at Bondi while the Short Laughs Comedy is an off-kilter selection of clever comedy shorts from across the world.
