Hot shorts coming to Griffith

Flickerfest is celebrating 25 years and has hit the road again with its Best of Australian Shorts as part of a national tour, and will be arriving at Griffith Regional Theatre on Friday March 18 at 6.30pm for 7.30pm.

Acting Manager, Griffith Regional Theatre and Art Gallery, Margaret Andreazza said the tour gives Griffith locals a first look at the hottest short films in the country.

“The tour to Griffith showcases the Best of Australian Shorts programme, featuring the hottest shorts from the Australian competition at this year’s festival and a range of wonderful new short films,” said Mrs Andreazza.

“Highlights of the programme include ERNIE BISCUIT, a film from Academy® Award winner Adam Elliot - this clever animation traces the story of a lonely, deaf Parisian Taxidermist whose life is turned upside down by the arrival of a dead pigeon.”

“And don’t miss the gorgeously shot and highly amusing SLINGSHOT, this year’s Flickerfest winner of the Academy® Accredited Virgin Australia Award for Best Australian Short Film,” she added.

Also screening is FLAT DADDY, starring Kat Stewart (Offspring) and Kathryn Beck (East of Everything) a contemporary story about life, death, betrayal and life-size cardboard cut-outs.

Tickets are just $15 including drink and pizza on arrival and are on sale at www.griffithregionaltheatre.com.au or contact the Box Office on 6962 8444.

“The entire programme has been hand-picked and is full of fantastic short films – this is a not to be missed programme for film lovers!” said Mrs Andreazza.
