Short film festival Flickerfest is coming to Mullumbimby Civic Hall from 18-20 February.
The three-day programme will screen over 40 Australian and international short films, selected from 2,700 entries.
Flickerfest director Bronwyn Kidd said: ‘The films we are presenting are soulful, insightful, moving and funny and I think they will really resonate with our local audiences.’
Featured films include #MeToo drama This River, shot in Lismore by Lismore-born director Naomi Fryer, which won the Spectrum Award for Best Direction in an Australian Short Film at Flickerfest Bondi.
Also on the programme is Indigenous psychological drama The Moogai by Casino based Bundjalung/Wiradjuri man Jon Bell, creator of ABC series The Gods of Wheat Street.
Both Naomi Fryer and Jon Bell will be present to introduce their films at Flickerfest Mullumbimby.
The festival is a fundraiser for the Island Quarry Arts & Eco Centre (iQ) in Byron Bay.
