All films officially selected at Flickerfest are competing for a number of prizes across all areas of the filmmaking craft including the Flickerfest Award For Best International Film, the Yoram Gross Award For Best Animation and Virgin Australia Award For Best Australian Film, all Academy® accredited.

FLiCKERFEST is Australia’s only Academy®™ accredited and BAFTA recognised short film festival and kicks off the summer cinema season under the stars at Bondi Beach, screening the best short films from Australia and the world in the chilled and iconic location of the Bondi Pavilion from Friday 9 January to Sunday 18 January.  In 2015 it celebrates its’ 24th birthday.

After wrapping up the ten day Sydney event the very best flicks from the festival will then hit the road to 50 destinations across the country for its annual tour between January and May 2015.  FLICKERFEST is fresh bite-sized global cinema at its very best – the must-attend summer event not to be missed!

Congratulations to all of our selected filmmakers and a huge thanks to all of the many talented filmmakers who entered Flickerfest this year, sadly we always have more great short films entered than we are able to screen at the festival.

We can’t wait to share this spectacular programme of shorts from the world’s most talented short filmmakers under the summer stars at Bondi Beach 9-18 January and programme highlights on tour across Australia this summer.

Stay tuned over the next few days as we will be announcing our Academy® Accredited Short Documentary Competition, GreenFlicks – global environmental programme and FlickerUp National Youth Competitions, alongside a range of showcase programmes including ‘Short Laughs’ – comedy mix, ‘Love Bites’  – juicy relationship shorts, ‘FlickerKids’  – a delightful family programme and more…..

We look forward to welcoming you at Flickerfest 2015!

This year, the much anticipated theme revolved around iconic film classic James Bond who descends upon our iconic Bondi beach in a brilliantly crafted comic parody. The trailer was directed by acclaimed director, Matthew Moore and produced by Moth Projects and starred the legendary Robyn Nevin, much loved actor Rodger Corser and supermodel Samantha Harris.  Matt won the Audience Award for his comedy ‘Julian’ at Flickerfest 2012.
