Returning to Bondi for its 29th year, international short film festival Flickerfest will run from January 10 to 19 at Bondi Pavilion this month. Short films featured at the festival are selected from over 3000 entries and are entered into Academy qualifying and BAFTA recognised competitions for 2020. Flickerfest offers a range of prestigious prizes including Flickerfest Award for Best International Short Film, the Yoram Gross Award for Best International Animation, the Flickerfest Award for Best Australian Short Film and the Flickerfest Award for Best Documentary.
Festival director Bronwyn Kidd is excited to present another year of hand-selected short films for the festival’s 2020 audience.
“The thing for me that I’ve really noticed coming through this year across our Australian and International entries is just the diversity really, an incredible diversity of voices,” said Bronwyn, going on to say, “It’s 10 days of an incredibly diverse selection of short films over 27 different programs.”
Flickerfest aims to promote a supportive, exciting and inclusive environment with Bronwyn saying, “It’s really a place for discovery…Flickerfest is always very warm, it’s a great community vibe, it’s all about having the opportunity to network and hang out with the filmmakers. It’s all about celebrating fresh new stories.”
