For many filmmakers across the globe 2021 has been a strange and difficult year and we at Flickerfest understand that COVID-19 has put up some roadblocks for many filmmakers not being able to complete their shorts to schedule. Due to this we will be open to working with filmmakers in accepting late submissions and/or cuts of shorts for consideration providing that the finalised film can be delivered in a timely manner to screen in Bondi in January 2022 if selected.
Please email: [email protected] with any enquiries.
