Flickerfest short film festival launched Monday night at the Bondi Icebergs with Gracie Otto’s short film ‘Desert Dash’ a very amusing feature, starring Gracie herself and Damian Walshe-Howling and featuring Barry Otto as a radio announcer. Gracie Otto gave a short speech and it was a family affair as her parents Barry and Sue Hill were on hand as well.

Festival director Bronwyn Kidd led the introductions and spoke of the festival’s growth. The Flickerfest festival has expanded in the last (almost) thirty years from a modest festival to something that is now bigger than Ben Hur. 2018 brings over 22 different short film programmes across the 10-day festival season, to commence in January.

The Flickerfest team and committee have watched and reviewed over 2000 entries to select about 100 that will be screened in competition; cementing Flickerfest’s reputation in cutting edge shorts from all over the world. The Flickerfest Festival will be on at Bondi Pavilion from 11 – 20 January 2019.
