This is an opportunity for you to enjoy some of the best Australian short films in an exclusive one-night event.

The good folks behind the festival have carefully curated an exciting program of 'Stellar 12' films. Such films have been selected for their quality and enjoyment, many the recipients of multi-award wins. Such films include a contender for one of this year's Academy Awards! ('The Eleven O'Clock').

In a positive sign of the times, 50% of the directors of the 'Stellar 12' chosen films are female! Film submissions to Stellar are by invitation only, with the criteria that selected films must have won an award in an Australian film festival in the past year.
