Flickerfest Short Film Festival Set To Return in 2023

Flickerfest
Our eclectic team of writers from around Australia – and a couple beyond – with decades of combined experience and interest in all fields.

This summer, Australia’s largest short film competition (and the only one with Academy qualification and BAFTA recognition!) – Flickerfest – will once again roll out the red carpet at Bondi Beach.


The festival will celebrate its 32nd year in 2023. This not-to-be-missed, ten-day event will showcase a handpicked selection of exciting short film from Australia, and the world. Flickerfest also returns to its old home in 2023, the stylishly revamped Bondi Pavilion.

A huge 200 inspiring short films have been handpicked from a massive pool of over 3,000 entries. These films are set to move, inspire and entertain the 2023 audiences with some of the very best short films Australia and the world has to offer, across 29 dedicated festival programmes.

Along with enthralling all who attend, the films are all vying for a number of prestigious prizes, including the Flickerfest Award for Best International Short Film, the Yoram Gross Award for Best International Animation, the Panasonic Lumix for Best Australian Short Film and the Flickerfest Award for Best Documentary. All of these are Academy qualifying.

Following the main event in Sydney will be a huge national tour to more than 50 venues from February to October 2023.

Flickerfest 2023 takes place at Bondi Beach from 20-29 January.
