AACTA Shorts + Web Fest presented by MINI is a two-day festival for emerging short filmmakers and online content creators!
Hosted by THE FEED’s Jan Fran, the festival program will feature screenings of the productions shortlisted to be nominated for the 2019 AACTA Awards for Best Short Film, Best Short Documentary, Best Short Animation and Best Online Video or Series; masterclasses with world-class web and short form creators; Q&A interviews with industry leaders, stand-up comedy; and opportunities to connect with Australia’s biggest names in digital creation between sessions in the Festival Courtyard, filled with food trucks, pop-up bars and a live DJ.
Shorts + Web Fest will also feature the live final of AACTA Pitch: Elevate, a national pitching competition to discover the most original and exciting ideas for globally focused, high-concept scripted series. Attendees will also gain valuable insight from the AACTA Pitch: Elevate judges and other content commissioners in a conversation about mastering The Perfect Pitch.
Whether you are an inspiring filmmaker, accomplished in your craft and wish to connect with Australia’s leading creatives, or just enjoy watching great short films, AACTA Shorts + Web Fest is for you!
