There's something rather cool about being ahead of the curve when it comes to cinema, watching the latest and greatest flicks unfold on the silver screen before the rest of the world gets to see them. Well, at Flickerfest Short Film Festival you can do just that. Yep, break out the popcorn, the internationally acclaimed festival is touring in Brisbane on Thursday, February 20 — and there's a swag of homegrown talent on the bill.

This year, the folks at Flickerfest received a record 3500 entries from more than 100 countries around the world, making the 2020 program a real doozy. More than 200 handpicked creative and inspiring shorts screened at the festival's ten-day stint in Sydney earlier this summer. Now, at Palace James Street cinema, you'll catch the cream of the crop, with a focus on the best Australian shorts.

Highlights include Chicken, directed by Papua New Guinean-Australian director Alana Hicks; animated short Rebooted about a movie star who also happens to be a skeleton; A Day In Your Life which is a thoughtful insight into homelessness; and moving Indigenous drama My Name Is Mudju by Brisbane director Chantelle Murray.

'Rebooted'

After seeing a bunch of Aussie-made shorts, you can head to the after party. There you'll find plenty of snacks, beer, wine and non-alcoholic bevvies.

Tickets for the evening cost $25 and include access to the afterparty. To see the full program and grab tickets, head here.
