LateRooms.com - Short films prepare to premiere at Flickerfest Film Festival in Sydney
December 18, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsLateRooms.com can announce that Australia's premier short film festival is set to take the city by storm next year.
Flickerfest is an annual event held at Sydney's first beachside cinema, the Bondi Pavilion.
Now in its 19th year, the film festival showcases the best home-grown talent alongside their international counterparts with a series of short films and documentaries depicting stories from around the world.
Screenings take place from January 8th to 17th and include a mixture of competition entries and those just for fun.
Daytime showings take place in an indoor cinema, but every evening, the 9pm showcase will be featured in the outdoor amphitheatre.
Single session tickets start from AU$13 (£7.30), however, any keen film buffs may want to purchase a season pass for AU$130 if they are planning to stay in accommodation in Sydney for the duration of the festival.
Following its opening run in the New South Wales city, the films will go on show at a further 23 locations around the country.
Competition categories include the Audience Choice Short Film, the Best Australian Short Film and the Most Resourceful Film, with prizes ranging from technical equipment to cash.
The winner of last year's Best Short Film award was director Mads Matthiesen, whose piece, entitled Dennis, was produced by Jonas Bagger of Denmark.
