Flickerfest reveals flair of 106 short film filmmakers

FLICKERFEST is celebrating 23 years of short film excellence this year, and it kicks off today.

The short film festival brings its Spectacular Short Films With Soul into the Northern Rivers until Sunday.

The festival has been in the region 16 years, screening a smorgasbord of shorts from the Byron Region, Australia and around the world for three days at the A&I Hall, Bangalow.

Flickerfest is Australia's leading Academy accredited and BAFTA recognised short film festival, ensuring that they continue to present A-list short film programs recognised among the best in the world.

More than 2300 entries were received for Flickerfest 2014, and only the top 106 shorts have been selected in the official competition, all handpicked to represent the most innovative, creative and cutting edge short films being produced in the world today.

At Flickerfest Bangalow they will once again be screening an entertaining, inspiring and award-winning range of shorts, many of which are world or Australian premieres, giving local Flickerfest audiences the first look at the hottest short films in the world today.
