St Kilda Film Festival, presented and produced by the City of Port Phillip, screens Australian short films in all genres including drama, comedy, documentary, animation and digital media.

The short film competition prize pool totals over $35,000 worth of cash and in-kind craft awards, including a $10,000 prize for Best Short Film – the highest cash prize for short film in the country.
Other prizes include Best Director, Best Achievement in Screenplay, Best Documentary, Best Animation, Best Achievement in Cinematography, Best Achievement in Indigenous Film Making, Best Comedy, Best Achievement in Sound Post and Most Positive Image of Aging. Prizes are awarded by a three person independent jury panel following initial selection into the competition by the Festival Director.
As well as the short film competition, St Kilda Film Festival features the SoundKILDA Music Video Competition, Australia’s only dedicated competition for music videos. Selected by a panel of industry specialists, prizes will be awarded in two categories: Best Music Video and Best Music Video – Animation. There will also be a special audience award presented on the night, which is fast becoming one of the Festival favourites.
St Kilda Film Festival is presented and produced by the City of Port Phillip.
