Fish Creek Memorial Hall was very excited to host the first stop of the 2017 St Kilda Film Festival Victorian Tour!
The festival hit town at 7:30pm on Friday 30 June and screened some of the best short films from the 2017 St Kilda Film Festival. Around 80 people braved the cold to enjoy 11 films exploring a range of subjects – clashing cultures, vulture relatives, desperation in suburbia and women road-train drivers in WA.
The tour visited 18 Victorian towns including Mirboo North on Saturday 15 July.
Proudly presented and produced by the City of Port Phillip, the festival supports the Australian film industry by turning the spotlight on a wide range of fascinating works that may not otherwise see the light of day. Exceptional films by both emerging talent and short works by accomplished industry professionals are shown on the big screen, where they look their shiny best.
Accredited by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the St Kilda Film Festival is now an Academy Awards® qualifying event, with award-winning films from the festival eligible for consideration in the Short Film Awards and Documentary Short sections of the Oscars®.
The 2017 Victorian Tour included 11 short films and included all finalists from both the Award Winners and Director’s Choice Awards.
The screening was a joint initiative of Fish Creek Memorial Hall, Prom Coast Film Society and St Kilda Film Festival.
