The following weekend we head north to Newcastle with the Best of Australian Shortsprogramme which will include Melon Grab, directed by the Newcastle born and bred Director Andrew Lee.  The film was shot in and around Newcastle by fellow Newcastle born Dane Howell who took home the award for Best Cinematography in an Australian Short Film at our awards ceremony in Bondi in January.

Included in our Short Laughs Comedy programme is the winner of our Academy® Accredited Best Australian Short Film On Hold.  This delightful musical was Directed and Composed by the Newcastle raised Jake Nielsen and Matthew Predny who studied together at the Broadmeadows School of the Performing Arts!
