The Flickerfest Australian short film festival is making a return to Bangkok, showcasing a collection of films at Chulalongkorn University Centenary Park on Phaya Thai Road. The event is scheduled for Friday, March 15, from 6pm to 8pm.

Hosted by the Australian Embassy, the festival aims to highlight the skills of Australian filmmakers with a lineup of eight short films.

The selection features diverse narratives such as a comedic take on an 18th-century couple navigating modern-day life, a former Australian superhero attempting to re-enter the workforce, and a tale of a young office employee discovering imperfections in his stop-motion world.

The comedy section includes four films: “Wonder Down Under”, directed by Declan Arrighi, “White Lies”, by Greg Moran, “The Best Dumplings in Melbourne”, by Brendan Wan, and “Married at First Fleet”, by Blythe Ashton.

Additional films presented are “An Ostrich Told Me The World Is Fake And I Think I Believe It”, an animated piece by Lachlan Pendragon, “Something’s Not Quite Right”, a drama by Tom Cornwall, and “The Moogai”, a horror film by Jon Bell,

“Bunker: The Last Fleet”, a popular science fiction story by Stephen Potter and Rowan Pullen, will also be screened at the event.

As the premier international competition for short films in Australia, Flickerfest has been a platform for showcasing extraordinary storytelling and unique voices from filmmakers worldwide for 33 years, celebrating both local Australian talent and international filmmakers.

The festival offers an opportunity for audiences to view these films, all of which are subtitled in Thai, free of charge.
