The Home of great short films is coming to Maryborough.
Celebrating 26 years as ‘The Home Of Great Short Film’ in 2017 Flickerfest remains Australia’s leading Academy® Accredited and BAFTA recognised short film festival, ensuring that we continue to present A-list short film programmes recognised amongst the best in the world.
Flickerfest is excited to be bringing the National Tour to Maryborough showcasing the Best of International 2 and the Short Laughs Comedy programmes, with films hand-picked from the festival’s 2400 entries. Audiences are set to enjoy an inspiring and award winning range of films, giving local Flickerfest audiences the first look at the hottest shorts in the world today.
2pm Session: The Best of International 2 programmes bring a selection of film gems from our Academy® Accredited Sydney competition. Highlights include the 2017 Academy® Award winning short film
‘Mindenki’ (‘Sing’) from Hungary, which based on a true story ‘follows an award-winning school choir and the new girl in class facing a tough choice: to stand up against a corrupt system – or to fit quietly into it’.

5pm Session: Our Short Laughs Comedy programme showcases the most side-splitting shorts to come from Australia and across the world, including oddball comedy ‘Twinsburg’ from the USA, shining the spotlight on a midwestern town where thousands convene for the world’s largest gathering of twins and ‘The Record: World’s Largest Family’, co-written by and starring Triple J radio host Veronica Milsom. This gloriously funny and surprisingly touching mockumentary takes you into a world where a couple, in their quest for a little girl, end up with 69 boys and a determination to break the record for world’s largest family.
