Flickerfest and One Vision Productions have joined forces to facilitate a workshop and free film screening that has brought flood-affected youth together to tell their stories.

The workshop will culminate in the premiere of a music video, produced by the workshop participants.

Flickerfest Festival Director, Bronwyn Kidd, said Flickerfest was thrilled to invite One Vision Productions to partner with them for this special event.

‘This project delivers a workshop that supports flood-impacted youth, and a Flickerfest special film screening that will share the participant’s story within an uplifting short film program.

‘It’s great to be back presenting a screening in our hometown of Mullumbimby, after having to move our event earlier this year because of the floods.’

Award-winning

There will also be a collection of award-winning Northern Rivers shorts from the Byron All Shorts competition, screened alongside Flickerfest at Bangalow earlier this year.

They include The Rock Pool Waltz, Tribe and The Rise.

The screening will be held tomorrow, Saturday, from 7pm at St John’s Hall, Mullumbimby.

Tickets are free, but strictly limited. To secure a seat visit www.flickerfest.com.au/tour/free-youth-workshop-screening.
