WHERE: Performance Space, Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts
Escape the summer heat and soak up the most absorbing cinema shorts from around the world with
’s leading short film festival, returning to the Judith Wright Centre this February.
A record 2300 entries were received for FLiCKERFEST 2013, and the final programme will feature the 100 most innovative, creative and cutting edge short films from Australian and international contenders. Queensland is not without representation in this year’s programme, with two local films set to tour across the country.
Flying the Queensland flag is Darling Downs-born filmmaker S.P. Krause and his film Huge, which follows comedian Barry Branch (John Batchelor) on the cusp of a big break that could make him a movie star.
The second local film is Captive by Michael Noonan and features Brisbane’s own Margi Brown Ash in a story where a confused old man realises that everything he thought he knew - including his ‘soul mate’ – is not what it appears to be.
Also on the Aussie front is Nash Edgerton’s short film The Captain, which was the only Australian short film accepted into the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and will have its world premiere in the FLiCKERFEST programme.
Past home grown competitors who are now enjoying international success include Sundance awarded director David Michod (Animal Kingdom) and Cannes Film Festival winner Warwick Thornton (Samson and Delilah).
This year the Best Australian Film Award has become Academy® Accredited and will now join the festival’s existing Academy® Accredited Awards for Best Film and Best Animation in the international section. The honour of this accreditation will ensure greater opportunities for Australian short filmmakers internationally.
