Flickerfest is returning to the Cube Theatre at the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre on Friday, 26 April 2019, showcasing the Best of Australian Shorts.

Perth filmmakers Miley Tunnecliffe and Emilia Jolakoska will be there with their modern short comedy CALLING.

CALLING chronicles the dysfunctional relationship between a mother and daughter entirely through their phone calls and has a predominately female cast and crew. Miley Tunnecliffe won the Rebel8 for Outstanding Emerging Female Director at Flickerfest, as well as Best International Film at the Austin Short Comedy Festival 2018.

Another local Western Australian short film gem is JUDAS COLLAR directed by Alison James and produced by Brooke Silcox. Both will attend the Bunbury event.

JUDAS COLLAR explores the importance of connection and the tragedy of self-sacrifice by following a wild female camel who is captured and fitted with a tracking device known as a Judas Collar.

Aussie favourite Jack Thompson takes the lead role in the haunting HOME, which Peter Gurbiel produced, wrote and directed in WA.

There will be a special Q&A after the screening with CALLING Director Miley Tunnecliffe and Producer Emilia Jolakoska, as well as JUDAS COLLAR Producer Brooke Silcox.

Other highlights from the Best of Australian Shorts include:

  • ALL THESE CREATURES – winner of the 2018 Palme d’Or at Cannes 2019, Best Editing in an Australian Short Film at Flickerfest 2019
  • DELLA MORTIKA: CAROUSEL OF SHAME – winner of the Best Australian Animation award at Flickerfest 2019
  • GHOSTBEAR – beautifully crafted and haunting animation from comedian and actor Paul McDermott
