The red carpet will be rolled out at The Civic in time for a one-off screening of Australia’s largest short-film competition – Flickerfest.
The best short-films have been handpicked from nearly 2700 entries. Laugh, cry and be transported far beyond Gunnedah as the filmmakers take the audience on a journey.
Gunnedah Shire Council’s cultural precinct team leader Lauren Mackley said the uniting force among the screenings at the 2019 Flickerfest Festival was the ability to push the conventions of film and narrative to deliver ground-breaking pieces across a variety of genres.
“This is a chance to see these amazing short films before they continue their journey across more than 50 Australian venues and then around the world,” Ms Mackley said.
“The best of the Australian, international and comedy categories will be shown, following the annual 10-day competition in Bondi.”
Full session tickets, which include the screening of Best of Australian Short Films and Best of International Short Films, are available for $40 or $35 concession, while single session tickets are $25.
FilmTRAC, Gunnedah’s local film enthusiasts group, will be catering for the afternoon with refreshments available on arrival.
Doors open at The Civic from 2pm on Sunday, February 17.
Tickets are available online on The Civic website, at the Gunnedah Visitor Information Centre, or at the council administration building.
