Fresh from its ten day Bondi event, Australia’s largest short film festival, Flickerfest, returns to Australia’s biggest little town from Thursday January 30 to Saturday February 1.

It is the first leg of a national tour, which will see over 40 short films screened, including Academy® nominees, much loved festival award winners and exciting local talent.

Flickerfest’s organisers say their 2020 program was selected from 3,600 entries, from 100 countries, ‘giving Northern Rivers audiences a first look at the hottest short films in the world over three big cinema-packed days at the Mullumbimby Civic Hall’.

Fest director Bronwyn Kidd says, ‘Flickerfest is thrilled to be a platform for supporting and celebrating so many female-driven stories this year, and I’m also super excited to be bringing Flickerfest home to Mullumbimby, where I live’.

Thursday’s international line-up includes the intimate French animation Memorable, which is nominated for the upcoming Academy® Awards.

Friday is the best of Australian shorts, while Saturday’s screening is the best of local Northern Rivers shorts.
