The best films featured at the internationally-renowned film festival from 2015-2019 will screen at the 2020 Best Of Port Shorts Virtual Film Festival launching on Friday October 16th at 7pm ADST, and available on demand until October 23.    Showcasing more than 50 short films from around the world, the festival will be streamed for free online to an international audience.

The Port Shorts crew have curated a show of their favourite films from the last 5 years.  You’ll laugh, your spines will tingle, you may cry – but hey, you’re at home on the couch so who cares if you shed a few tears or spill the popcorn.

Emerging filmmakers will also be able to access free virtual Masterclass Series workshops with a host of industry experts including world-leading drone operators XM2, composer/sound artist Steeve Body, producer Ashley Davies and screenwriter and Port Shorts Ambassador Kier Shorey over the two-day virtual short film fest.

Legendary Aussie actor and Port Shorts Ambassador Stephen Curry is not letting COVID-19 stop him from hosting the virtual and live festivals, reporting for MC duties from his Melbourne lounge room due to lockdown restrictions alongside good friend and fellow Port Shorts Ambassador, Wolf Creek and Rogue producer Matt Hearn.

The 2020 Port Shorts Film Festival will be among the first in the world to produce a simultaneous virtual and live event featuring the festival’s best ever short films, documentaries and music videos next week!

For those lucky enough to live around or visit Port Douglas in tropical North Queensland, the 2020 Best Of Port Shorts Film Festival free live event will be held in idyllic Rex Smeal Park on October 17 for a restricted audience.
