Flickerfest began as a small local festival at the Balmain High School in 1991. Over the last 21 years it has grown to become Australia's only competitive International Short Film Festival with entries coming from filmmakers across the globe.
Flickerfest is considered in international circles as the leading Australian competitive short film festival and increasingly filmmakers view it as one of the main festivals on the world circuit. To maintain this high standard each year the festival director visits festivals around the world seeking new films most of which have not been seen in Australia.
In 2003 the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science elected to recognise Flickererfest as a qualifying festival for the Best Short Film and Best Animation categories of the Academy® Awards. In 2010, Flickerfest was also recognised by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), making films from the UK that won at Flickerfest, eligible for a BAFTA nomination. We are the only short film festival in Australia with BAFTA and Academy® accredited status.
The honour of Academy® Award accreditation will guarantee Flickerfest's international profile for many years to come, whilst also ensuring greater opportunities for our Australian short film makers internationally.
A summer of live music and feature films under the stars is on the way, as Bondi Openair Cinema (20 January 2011 – 5 March 2011) returns to Bondi Pavillion. This marks the second leg of Australian Openair Cinema, which kicked off in St Kilda on 9 December. The outdoor cinemas are located in some of Australia’s iconic locations, beginning on the rooftop of the St Kilda Sea Baths, making its way to the shores of Sydney’s Bondi Beach on 20 January and Rainforest Green of South Bank in Brisbane on 24 February 2011.
Bondi Openair nights are a quintessentially summer event; with feature films playing on huge outdoor screens from dusk. Cinemagoers can relax with some gourmet-style food and tasty beverages from the licensed bar, while listening to the sunset sounds of acoustic sets from emerging musicians.
With over 30 years experience collecting and exhibiting Aboriginal Art, our Executive Director Adrian Newstead personally sources artworks from Aboriginal communities throughout Australia and selects the finest secondary market pieces for Coo-ee's extensive collectors stockroom. Since first working with Aboriginal artists in 1981, Coo-ee Gallery has curated and organised more than 300 Indigenous art exhibitions in Australia and overseas involving individual Aboriginal artists and community groups. The gallery, now situated at the iconic destination of Bondi Beach, Sydney, specialises in both primary and secondary market Aboriginal art. This includes historically important bark paintings, artefacts, and early desert boards as well as high quality contemporary Aboriginal paintings, sculpture and limited edition fine art prints.
The Art Gallery is booked throughout the year with a new exhibition every two weeks. This turn around ensures a diverse and exciting range of exhibitions at the Pavilion. It has the advantage of being close to public transport and Sydney's most famous beach, ensuring a good attendance to the gallery over the two week period.
