Flickerfest, Australia’s largest Short Film Festival is excited to be returning on its National Tour to the Empire Theatre showcasing the Best of Australian Shorts programme highlights from our recent Bondi festival competition.

 The short films featured are all entertaining, inspiring, award-winning and fresh from their premieres in competition at Flickerfest Bondi, giving Toowoomba Flickerfest audiences a window into the hottest contemporary shorts from at home and across the world today.

Once again the Australian programme shines a spotlight on the incredible short film talent that exists in our emerging Australian industry. Screening on Friday 22nd of April at 7.30pm, highlights from the Best of Australian Shorts include the quirky black space comedy ‘The Home Team’ starring comedy legend Paul McDermott and acclaimed actress Tara Morice (‘Strictly Ballroom’) and the fun neighbourly drama ‘Stonefish’ written by and starring accomplished young Queensland actor, George Pullar (‘Barons, A Place To Call Home’) and directed by acclaimed actress and first time director Megan Smart, known for her most recent roles in mini series (‘Wakefield’ 2021) and (‘Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway’ 2021).

The moving and intimate sibling drama ‘You Me Before And After’ starring Yael Stone (‘Orange Is The New Black’) and Emily Barclay (‘Mr In Between’, ‘Glitch’, ‘Baby Teeth’) also shines on the big screen in this exceptional programme alongside the film which took home both the Academy® Qualifying Panasonic LUMIX Award for Best Australian Short film and the AVID award for Best Original Music at #flickerfest2022, the stunning ‘Giants’ from director Eddy Bell.WHAT: Flickerfest 2022: Best of Australian Shorts
