There will be plenty of excitement in in Numurkah and Yarroweyah on the weekend as Australia’s best short films will feature on the big screen when the St Kilda Film Festival’s Victorian Tour screens on July 28 and 29.
Moira Arts and Culture is excited to once again bring the film festival, now in its 34th year, to its patch and expects the event to draw a large crowd, as it has in previous years.
The festival supports the Australian film industry by turning the spotlight on a wide range of fascinating works that may not otherwise see the light of day.
Exceptional films by emerging artists and short works by accomplished industry professionals are shown on the big screen, where they look their shiny best.
The innovative short films on display cover a diverse range of genres including documentary, animation, fiction and comedy, with many of the titles in the tour program picking up awards in the Top 100 Short Films Competition.
The Victorian tour ensures that film buffs have the opportunity to view the year’s exceptional short film entries from the nation’s leading filmmaking talent.
The festival takes pride in promoting the work of exciting young filmmakers who represent the emerging generation of new talent in the Australian industry.
At the local venues, patrons are invited to enjoy a glass of champagne on arrival and a delicious supper during interval. Tickets are $30 or $25 for MAC members.
