Press release from Flickerfest

Flickerfest, Australia’s premiere International Short Film Festival is thrilled to announce the launch of a brand new online resource designed to give all Australian filmmakers a head start in the world of marketing their short to a global community.


The Flickerfest Filmmaker’s Resource Site: a new creation from Flickerfest, supported by our major government sponsor, Screen Australia, is now live.

With over 12 years experience in short film distribution and a catalogue of around 200 of Australia’s best shorts Flickerfest knows a thing or two about marketing and selling short films to the world, and with the launch of our new Filmmakers Resource Site, we aim to unlock a few secrets, and share the knowledge.

Aimed at filmmakers with a completed short film ready to let loose on the market, or anyone thinking of making a film or in the throes of completing one, the Filmmakers Resource Site will be a one-stop-shop for all those questions about marketing and distribution, festivals, legal requirements, contracting, rights and clearances.

The site will dispense information, answer often-asked questions and provide links to other sites for specific expertise. There are downloads, links to other sources of information and to the filmmaking video toolkits on the Flickerfest on EXTRA site where you can listen to experts such as Greg McLean, Jan Chapman, Fred Schepisi and many others giving you hot tips about making shorts.
