Reelife Short Film Festival

by annie lecavalier August 19, 2015
The 2007 Reelife Short Film Festival is a celebration of Australia’s talented young filmmakers, with 15 amazing films scheduled for the National tour. This year’s finalists represent the four points of the nation with contributions ranging from Margaret River WA, Reynella SA, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. Their films span the gamut of issues, from homelessness, to Workers Rights, to avoiding the pressure of an interfering mother to get married! Genres are broad as well from comedy to drama, experimental, mime and a western. The films display an incredible mix of intelligence, style and nuance that reflects a maturity and artistry that is very exciting for Australia's next generation of filmmakers.

This year the festival has expanded to include extra screenings, including an out-of-competition Best of Young British screening of short films from the impressive young talent (15-25 year olds) Britain has to offer. Screened with the support of the British Council, it’s your chance to see how our local talent stacks up against the edgy and innovative savviness of young British filmmakers.

A special re-screening of the 2006 finalists has been organised in conjunction with ATOM, specifically for secondary schools. A free Educational Study Guide is available to down load from ATOM . 

The school screenings show students the opportunities available to them through the Reelife Short Film Festival, which was established by Vibewire Inc in 2002 as a platform for Australian youth to express their ideas and opinions through issues-based short films. The 2006 Festival was won by James Hunter and his film School Daze, who is a 15 year old school student from Canberra, proving that talent and success are not constrained by age.
