Magic Monday at Flickerfest 2018!

15th January 2018


What better way to beat the Monday blues and ease yourself back into the week than checking out some of the amazing shorts we have on offer!

Our Best of International 3 programme features shorts from some very unique parts of the globe including Tunisia, Hungry and Norway!

Out of Ireland from 2016 Academy Award for best Live Action Short winner Benjamin Cleary comes Wave.  Once again, Cleary explores the surreal, the serene and the nature of humanity in this charming short in which a man wakes from a coma speaking an unrecognisable language, baffling experts as he attempts to navigate his way in the world once again.

From the United States comes the immensely powerful Cannes Palme d’Or nominated short Across My Land.  Produced by Academy Award nominated actor Joaquin Phoenix and starring his sister Summer Phoenix Across my land takes us into the world of a father and son living on the American border with Mexico who one night get their rifles prepared for a patrol along the border wall. Weapons loaded, they greet other militia along the way who hunt down immigrants.

Capping off this magical evening is our Best of Australian 5 programme, taking you on a journey of Virtual Reality, spirits, omens and even a Gwen Stefani doll!!

For those who like a bit of adrenaline with their short films, the spooky The Baby Whisperer will certainly keep you on the edge of your seat with your heart in your mouth!!

If you’re worried about nightmares following that one, not too worry because we will follow it up with On Hold, a unique short film-musical exploring that age old issue of following your dream’s whilst still actually being able to pay your rent!

We’ve got Monday-itis covered at Flickerfest 2018!  Come along and enjoy the magic.  Tickets via Moshtix!
