Despite the heat, Mullum Flickerfest screened to near full houses over the weekend, with audiences experiencing the best of short films from around Australia and the world.

One of the films, Animal Behavior, is short-listed for the Oscars.

Audiences enjoyed a three-day cinematic journey, with a breadth of diversity and highly crafted short films selected from over 2,700 entries and 125 films in competition in Bondi.

The annual Byron All Shorts program, which screened on Saturday (January 28), once again shared with large local audiences the best short films from the region.

Byron All Shorts 2019 saw 15 local finalists from the Northern Rivers hotly contesting prizes that recognise excellence in short filmmaking.

Many finalist filmmakers were on hand to introduce their films to the enthusiastic crowd.

Organisers, IQ Inc, took the opportunity to announce their plans for a Vivid style event to be held at the Island Quarry Reserve, Byron Bay, in the near future.

Tamlin, Polly and Ben from Club Sandwich, created a teaser at Flickerfest, a stunning multi-projector video-mapping, while Dan from Jacksons Tech Services installed UFO-spotting searchlights on the Mullum Civic Hall façade.
