AUSTRALIA'S leading film festival Flickerfest will be bringing a smorgasbord of short films from Australia and around the world to the Whitsunday PCYC this Friday and Saturday night.

The festival is celebrating 23 years of short film excellence and will be showing off 'Spectacular Short Films with Soul' from 7pm.

Flickerfest remains Australia's only academy accredited and British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) recognised short film festival, ensuring that A-list short film programs are recognised among the best in the world.

Over 2300 entries were received for Flickerfest 2014, and only the top 120 shorts were selected in the official competition.

All films are handpicked to represent the most innovative, creative and cutting edge short films being produced in the world today.

Flickerfest will be screening an entertaining, inspiring and award winning range of shorts, many of which are international or Australian premieres, giving local audiences a first look at the latest 30 minutes or less short films to grace the big screen.

The calibre of this year's program is undeniable with several films screening at some of the worlds most prominent and revered film festivals including Sundance and Cannes.

The first film will start at 7pm but audiences are advised to arrive at 6.30pm to order refreshments from the bar and get comfy before the festival kicks off. Tickets cost $25 per person on the door and supper is included.

Children are welcome to attend but those under the age of 15 must be accompanied by an adult.
