The globe's best short films showcased
Short film festival, Flickerfest is returning this year for the 26th time, once again showcasing the best short films the globe has to offer.

Flickerfest Short Film Festival is Academy-accredited and BAFTA-recognised - the only such short film festival in Australia. It whittles down a whole heap of short films to the top of the pile for your viewing pleasure.

Divided into two screenings on Wednesday 15 February and Thursday 16 February, the short film festival will focus on shorts from European Union countries on the Wednesday and shorts from Victorian filmmakers on the Thursday.

Wednesday's Windows On Europe 2017 Tour will feature 8 short films from European Union countries, with the films' content including intrepid amphibians, an escaped bear in Berlin, score-settling teenagers and a translator who refuses to talk.

The entire lineup of short films on Wednesday can be found here:

Local short films will be celebrated at Thursday's session, Best of Melbourne Shorts 2017 Tour. 9 short films will be shown, with the content of these films including mischievous Australian strangers, a rock jumping tragedy, a robot replacing a deceased mother and a recovering recluse.

The entire lineup of short films on Thursday can be found here:

The Melbourne Shorts session includes post-screening drinks and nibbles.

Showing at the Palace Kino Cinemas, tickets can be bought for a single session or a festival pass for both nights can be bought at a reduced price.
