‘Flickerfest – A Kaleidoscopic Carnival Of Short Films and a fundraiser
The Flickerfest crew have announced that the 2022 event with Byron All Shorts will be a fundraiser for local flood recovery for the Koori Mail to rebuild, for Indigenous families throughout the Bundjalung Nation and for the Mullumbimby Neighbourhood Centre’s local rebuild and recovery initiatives.
One hundred per cent of profits from ticket sales across the weekend will be shared between these organisations. Flickerfest and Byron All Shorts has moved to the Bangalow A&I Hall, because its usual home of the Mullum Civic Hall is being used as the Resilience NSW Recovery centre.
Fresh from its ten day Bondi event in late January, Flickerfest, Australia’s largest short film festival returns to The Northern Rivers for its 25th year. The Island Quarry and Flickerfest will present their satellite event at the A&I Hall Bangalow, sharing a smorgasbord of over 40 incredible short films from its Academy and BAFTA Qualifying short film festival. Including recent Academy® nominees, much loved festival award winners and exciting local talent.
The Flickerfest 2022 programme was selected from 3,200 entries, from over 100 countries, giving Northern Rivers’ audiences a first look at the hottest short films from at home and the world, over three big cinema packed days.
Mullum Flickerfest – 31st International Short Film Festival and Byron All Shorts – Northern Rivers Film Competition.
Bangalow A&I Hall from Thursday 31 March to Saturday 2 April.
