Flickerfest, Australia’s only Academy Award-accredited and BAFTA recognised short film festival, and largest short film competition, is accepting entries from at home and around the world for the 2014 Festival. Celebrating twenty-three years of the best short films from around the world, Flickerfest will screen for ten days at Bondi Beach in January 2014 before heading off on a national tour. In 2014, Flickerfest is thrilled to announce that entries are open for FlickerUp, our national youth competition for films from primary and secondary school students or filmmakers under eighteen years of age across Australia.
FlickerUp films should be imaginative, fun and original, while showcasing youth talent. We encourage documentary, animation or drama on any theme. Finalist FlickerUp films will screen at the ten-day Flickerfest festival in Sydney. A jury made up of film industry professionals will judge films and award prizes in several categories, including Best Primary School Short and Best High School Short. Generous prizes for each category will be announced soon.
Films must be under 35 minutes and have been completed within two years of the entry closing dates.
Films can be entered on DVD and compilations are acceptable for school entries.
Entry Deadlines: Australian entries must be received by 5pm, Friday 18th October 2013
Entry is ONLY available online at the Flickerfest website: http://www.flickerfest.com.au
