The Flickerfest Tour is now on the road around Australia and will be stopping off at the Griffith Regional Theatre in Griffith on Saturday 20th March with the Best of Australian Shorts program.
"Flickerfest has been to Griffith Regional Theatre many times before, and is one of the most popular shows of our Season," Margaret Andreazza caretaker co-ordinator at the Griffith Regional Theatre said.
"There's always a great variety of subject matter - some are funny, some are sad, some are animated, and most are surprising.
"This year's line up includes a short film from Leeton-based actor Jake Speer and we have a brand-new state of the art cinema projector, so you really will be seeing the movies in the very highest quality.
"Flickerfest at Griffith Regional Theatre is always a great night out, with complimentary pizza and a glass of wine or soft drink at the interval."
Celebrating its 30th year in 2021 Flickerfest remains Australia's leading Academy® Qualifying and BAFTA Recognised short film festival, ensuring that we continue to present A-list short film programs recognised amongst the best in the world with films hand-picked from the festival's record 2700 entries.
