The Flickerfest tour went to Armidale and Gunnedah earlier in the year, and now it’s Narrabri’s turn, with the best of short film festival at the Crossing Theatre this Friday. This will be the last showing in the region.

Now in its 32nd year, Flickerfest attracted 3,200 entries and the cream of the crop have been hand-picked for the 2023 tour which was launched in Bondi in January.

The Best of Australian Shorts program will feature the award-winning Katele (Mudskipper), comedic flick Married at First Fleet and activist piece The Overthrow, in which two girls roller skate from Sydney to Parliament House in an emission-less climate change protest that tests more than their friendship.

The animation An Ostrich Told Me The World is Fake And I Think I Believe It tells the story of when a young telemarketer is confronted by a mysterious talking ostrich, he learns that the universe is stop motion animation. He must put aside his dwindling toaster sales and focus on convincing his colleagues of his terrifying discovery.

And you will see a familiar face in White Lies when New England MP Barnaby Joyce makes his screen debut as a well-intending father whose lies escalate out of control at his daughter’s religious school.

The short fils will screen on Friday 4th August, at The Crossing Theatre, starting at 7.00pm, with tickets $35 or $20 concession. The programs is available here: Best of Australian Shorts – 2023 Tour Narrabri
