One more treat

We couldn’t just leave you like that…

Shorts link 13 June

The Saturday night Short Film Program proved once again why it is such a popular part of our Festival. It is a wonderful example of the imagination and skills of our local amateur filmmakers.

We decided to give you another chance to check out the Shorts, so here is a link to the Vimeo channel for the Briagolong Film Festival Short Film Program:

It truly is a celebration of Gippsland’s creative talent, from children making their first film to experienced amateur filmmakers, featuring documentaries, slideshows and community projects and iconic Gippsland scenery.

And check out the synopsis and details of the films on the Vimeo channel, or download a copy of the Program handout here: Briagolong Shorts 2016 Program

A huge thankyou to the efforts of all of the filmmakers, and the many more who have told us they have started their projects and will be ready for next year’s festival. The video skills workshops we provided were well received and have helped at least three of tonight’s entries, so a big shout-out to Mick Green of Drift Media who gave taught us all so many great Tips & Tricks.

Before you go, one final reminder.  Don’t wait a whole year for your next film fix in a community setting (Netflix on your sofa just isn’t the same as sharing the experience with like-minded film fans).

Save the date: Saturday 20 August we have a special treat for you with the Best of the St Kilda Short Film Festival 2016 coming to our Briagolong Mechanics Institute – the only venue in Central and East Gippsland.

And, of course, you don’t need to trek to the city to see the best Arthouse films (those you’re unlikely to get in local cinema). Just check out the Stratford Courthouse Society’s July-December program, it’s a lovely, intimate theatre. Click here for more details. Check out their special events and the monthly Film Society – great value.

See you all again next year – or even sooner at one of the above 🙂
