We are super excited to extend a warm Bondi welcome to a number of filmmaking guests coming to join us at Flickerfest 2018 from far off lands!!!

From the United Kingdom we welcome Kate Herron who has not one but two shorts screening at Flickerfest this year.  Screening in both the Best of International 1 and in the Best of EU Shorts 2 programme is Five by Five which follows five different characters across London, all whom intertwine in a unique and intriguing way.  Five by Five stars Idris Elba (The Wire, Luther) and is produced by his production company Green Door Pictures.  Kate is the first director handpicked by Idris to direct a Narrative Fiction project for his production company.  Kate’s second film Smear screening in the Short Laughs Comedy 1 programme is a hilarious take on what can go down when a woman goes for a dreaded Pap Smear!!

From Bonnie Scotland we have the hilarious Good Girls from Writer/Director Niamh McKeown following the journey of Bonnie, the finest head girl at the finest school attempting to round up the school captain’s for a group photo.  Good girls screens in our Short Laughs Comedy 2 programme on Saturday the 20th of January and Niamh will be here to introduce her screening!!
