What's a Short Film?

New to the Film Festival and not sure what this short film business is all about?

A short is a film that has a duration shorter than 40 minutes.

Since the beginning of film, this artistic form of entertainment was short. Features and longer films have grown and become popular over the years since the expansion of equipment, software and technology.

Whilst short film may now not be so popular with commercial cinemas, it is still today a much loved pastime of film lovers, artistic lovers and Melbournian's.

We look forward to hosting you at the Festival and sharing our love of short film.
