Setting the scene for Tuesday is the always adorable, always fun FlickerKids programme bringing some delightful family friend shorts from all corners of the globe.

Stunning stop-animation Two Balloons will take you an amazing adventure through the stars and the clouds and the adorable Corky features a magical corkscrew, with a screw loose!!!

In the afternoon our Documentary Competition programmes kick off featuring not one but two Academy Award shortlisted documentary shorts!  Best of Documentary 1 brings us the endearing story of Edith & Eddie, who at 95 and 96 years of age are America’s oldest interracial newlyweds!!  Alas their love story is hindered as their family start to intervene and a family feud threatens to tear them apart!

In Kayayo, The Living Shopping Baskets we get a glimpse into the world of Bamanu, an 8 year old girl sent away from her family to work as a Kayayo (girl-carrier) in order to support her family. A must see in Best of Documentary 2, this captivating story joins Edith & Eddie on the shortlist for a Best Documentary Short Academy Award!

Our final programme Best of Australian 6 of the evening stars some of the darlings of the Australian Film and Television world including Cate Blanchett, Andy Lee and Alex Dimitriades!

One half of fave Aussie radio & TV duo Hamish and Andy, Lee lets us in on what really goes down behind the scenes at a call centre when we are asked to ‘please hold’, being put on hold will never be the same again after watching Your Call Is Important To Us !!!!
