It wouldn’t be summer if you didn’t sit in a cool, dark theatre and watch the Byron All Shorts program. Local filmmakers are invited to enter their short films to be screened in February as part of Flickerfest 2022 at Mullumbimby Civic Hall.

Filmmakers from across the region are invited to submit their short films of up to 30min in length, from all genres.

Prizes and cash

Prizes and cash to the value of $3,000 will be presented for the iQ-Flickerfest Best Short Film Award, the SAE Institute Emerging Talent Award & the Best Short Film Audience Award; recognising the incredibly talented filmmakers in our region.

Byron All Shorts is a dedicated Northern Rivers short film competition, judged by a team of Northern Rivers film industry professionals and provides a platform to celebrate, encourage and support local filmmakers to produce and share their short films.

If you live in the Northern Rivers, or have produced a film in the Northern Rivers, or have made a film about the Northern Rivers you can enter Byron All Shorts.

Byron All Shorts screens in conjunction with the Mullum Flickerfest’s 3-day annual film festival at Mullumbimby Civic Hall from Thursday February 17 to Saturday, February 19, 2022.
