About the Event

Flickerfest, Australia’s largest Short Film Festival is excited to be returning on its National Tour to The Twyford in Merimbula showcasing the Best of Australian Shorts and Short Laughs Comedy programmes, over 2 jam packed nights, featuring highlights from our recent Bondi festival competitions.

The short films screening are all entertaining, inspiring, award-winning and fresh from their premieres in competition at Flickerfest Bondi, giving Merimbula Flickerfest audiences a window into the hottest contemporary shorts from at home and across the world today.

On Friday night the Australian programme shines a spotlight on the incredible short film talent that exists in our emerging Australian industry. Highlights from the Best of Australian Shorts include the quirky black space comedy The Home Team starring comedy legend Paul McDermott and acclaimed actress Tara Morice (‘Strictly Ballroom’) and the fun neighbourly drama Stonefish written by and starring accomplished young actor, George Pullar (‘Barons, A Place To Call Home’) and directed by acclaimed actress and first time director Megan Smart, known for her most recent roles in mini series (Wakefield’ 2021) and (‘Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway’ 2021).

The moving and intimate sibling drama You and Me, Before And After starring Yael Stone (‘Orange Is The New Black’) and Emily Barclay (‘Mr In Between’, ‘Glitch’, ‘Baby Teeth’); the exceptional short film Tooly by Noongar writer/director/producer Karla Hart also shines on the big screen in this outstanding programme; alongside the film which took home both the Academy® Qualifying, Panasonic LUMIX Award for Best Australian Short film and the AVID award for Best Original Music at #flickerfest2022, the stunning Giants from director Eddy Bell.

On Saturday night the Short Laughs Comedy programme features clever comedies from at home and across the world, including the delightful UK short Don Vs Lightning, starring the legendary Peter Mullan as Don, a man who just wants a quiet life in the Scottish Highlands – alas the Universe has other plans, alongside acclaimed Australian actor/director Nash Edgerton’s hilarious black comedy Shark starring Nash and Rose Byrne and the laugh out loud UK/French animation Affairs Of The Art recently nominated for an Oscar for Best Short Animated Film. From New Zealand comes the heartwarming winner of the SAE Creative Media Institute Award for Best Use of Digital Technology In A Short Film at #flickerfest2022 Space Invader, the tale of young Max, who loves three things - hanging out with his dad (who's his best mate), baked beans and Star Wars, now all under threat when dad's new girlfriend comes on the scene.
