FLiCKERFEST 2016: The National Tour kicks off!
Flickerfest hits the road on our biggest National Tour ever- first stop Byron Bay region this weekend!
Our 25th Festival in Sydney was a huge success and now Flickerfest takes it on tour, winding our way across the country on our 50+ venue national tour.
All around Australia from Broome to Byron Bay, from Esperance to the Whitsundays and everywhere else in between, the national tour screens an entertaining, inspiring and award-winning range of the best films, celebrating 25 years of hot shorts.
The tour launches in the Byron Bay shire in Mullumbimby with an action-packed three-day event at the Mullumbimby Civic Hall from Friday 22nd to Sunday 24 January 2016. Join us for a wonderful Opening Night with films from across the globe and a catered pre-screening party to start the night off!
