Canberra Short Film Festival

When was the last time you watched a great film and said to yourself: “It would’ve been better if it was 20 minutes shorter”? If you’re like me, it was probably the last film you saw.

Thankfully, short films don’t suffer from being too long, and over at Freezone we’re gearing up for a short film bonanza in the next few weeks with the 18th annual Canberra Short Film Festival.

Held this coming weekend (13-15 September), filmmakers from around the world will be showcasing their labours of love and competing for prizes across a number of categories:

  • Best Canberra Films
  • Best Australian Comedy
  • Best Documentary
  • Best Australian Drama
  • Best International

For all our customers in the nation’s capital, it’s a great opportunity to catch some fantastic short cinema at Dendy Cinemas in Canberra. Be sure to check the festival’s official website for session times and to download the festival’s official program.

    The last truly great film I watched that was 20 minutes too long was Schindler’s List.

    If they’d dropped that last soppy and sentimental sequence it would have been much better. What were the writers and directors thinking?
