Freshflix 2018 film festival season and emerging filmmakers' conference


Saturday 26th May, 2018

We're cooking up our most massive event yet!

This season of FRESHFLIX will be held on the top floor of the Museum of Contemporary Art with insane views overlooking Sydney's Circular Quay on the first Saturday night of Vivid! It's going to be an absolute ripper!!

Freshflix is once again teaming up with Vivid Sydney to present the 2018 season of stunning short films in conjunction with the Freshflix Emerging Filmmaker Conference. The upcoming Freshflix will see the brightest shining new talents of Australian and international independent film taking on the silver screen.

After six stunning seasons of Freshflix Film Festival, 2018 is going to be bigger than ever! We're back to showcase the best in short film for this very special event in Sydney.

Our past events have set the tone with a blazing sunsets, live music and art and a heck of a cinematic experience... One set on a clifftop amidst the distant roar of crashing waves, another two warehouse parties with a Japanese food truck and banging great inner city vibes, a banquet feast followed by a film party in a craft brewery and our most recent in Los Angeles at the historical Raleigh Studios!

There will be nuggets of knowledge dispensed, there will be views to die for, there will be awards a-plenty and by golly, there will be a sensational time had by all.

Now open for submissions of films under 13 mins.
