Catch some of the most innovative, provocative and wildly entertaining short films the world has to offer at Australia’s leading short film festival

Now in its 27th year and bigger than ever, Flickerfest is both Australia's original open-air cinema and an annual distillation of the best short filmmaking in the world.

More than 2,400 entries were whittled down to a tight line-up of 100 short films for the festival at Bondi Pavilion. Flickerfest is the only short film festival in the country where prize winners obtain eligibility for consideration in both the Academy Awards and the BAFTAs.

The event features glam Opening Night and Closing Night Parties, under the stars at Bondi Beach and a panoramic Pop Up Beach Bar. Both events are also pretty swell for celebrity spotting, if that's your bag.

A highlight of Flickerfest every year is the Flickerfest trailer, which always riffs on a famous movie or star. This year's trailer is a spin on 'Crocodile' Dundee, with Darren Gilshenan steeping into the shoes of Paul Hogan. 

Tickets are on sale now.


The 2018 Flickerfest season launches in Sydney January 12-21 before touring the rest of the country to 50+ venues.
