Flickerfest 2020 presents "Best Of Australian Shorts".

Sunday 15th March
Tickets: Adult $18, Concession $15, available at the Regent or online at www.trybooking.com/BIIKV


Real to Reel is a short film festival that celebrates craft and making in all its facets: traditional, contemporary, subversive and diverse. Featuring an eclectic programme of shorts exploring our relationship with materials and making, the films have been selected from around the globe. Discover documentaries, maker profiles, music videos and hand-crafted animations that celebrate craft in all its facets.
Film offers makers unique possibilities of expression. It can capture transformations; material, time-based and otherwise, it can present singular and multiple narratives, it can enable the representation of the temporal and performative, and it can take a micro or macro view. In Real to Reel the films are grouped into three thematic sections – material narratives, performative making and animated craft – each immersing us in new environments and providing a different experience of craft.
Themes are at times playful or meditative, some highlight social impact projects. The 28 films selected feature contemporary weaving, woodwork, ceramics, glassblowing and metalsmithing, offering a unique opportunity to witness craft in action and the narratives, passion and skill inherent in the creation of works. The program also unites some unusual and perhaps unexpected tales of making – from miniatures, to replica birds’ eggs, to a human powered bakery – along with animations that bring to life fibre, wool, clay and found objects.

Saturday 21st March
Two sessions: 11:00am-12:30pm and 2:30pm-4:00pm

Screening of the film "A Boy Called Sailboat" with the soundtrack performed live on stage by The Grigoryan Brothers.
The Australian creative team behind new movie ‘A Boy Called Sailboat’, Cameron Nugent (director) and Andrew Curry (producer) are proud to present a special screening of their award-winning movie featuring Australia’s finest guitar duo, the Grigoryan Brothers, who created and arranged the haunting soundtrack to the movie, performing live.
A Boy Called Sailboat was shot in the United States and stars Academy Award winning actor J.K Simmons, Noel G, Elizabeth De Razzo, Jake Busey, Lew Temple and Julian Atocani Sanchez in the title role. This Australian funded film has received rave reviews and won awards at every festival at which it has screened.
The Boston Film Festival - Best Director and Best Screenplay Newport Beach Film Festival – Audience Award
Prescott Film Festival - Director’s Choice Award
This simple yet moving film is the story of a devout Hispanic family discovering fresh hope in their extraordinary son Sailboat, when a loving personal gesture awakens a global desire. Armed with a “little guitar” and shadowed by an unblinking sidekick, Sailboat leads an offbeat cast into the miraculous story of the greatest secret never told – until now.
The music is a key element in the movie as Sailboat’s story is entwined with the music that comes from his ukulele. Acclaimed Australian guitarists Slava and Leonard Grigoyran wrote and recorded the music for the film in Melbourne, Victoria.
