Flickerfest on Tour in the Northern Rivers region
We’ve had some great sessions already on the national tour which kicked off in the Northern Rivers region last week. Our Byron Bay screenings in Mullumbimby saw sell-out audiences and actor, director and writer Wayne Blair (The Sapphires) made a special visit for FlickerLab which delighted local filmmakers! The Byron All Shorts competition saw plenty of winning films from local filmmakers.
In Murwillumbah, we screened 2 locally-made films from the Byron All Shorts competition, (The Plover and The Battle, which also screened in the Documentary comp in Sydney) and filmmakers were there to introduce their films to appreciative audiences!
