Flickerfest, Australia’s largest Short Film Festival, is excited to be bringing its National Tour to The Crossing Theatre showcasing the Best of Australian Shorts and Best of International Shorts programmes. One Highlight from the Best of Australian Shorts on Saturday 19th June at 5pm includes Dust Cloud, about a badly behaved working dog (Jack) who changes his tune when he is given the love and respect he deserves from a prudent country woman played by Sandy Gore (Brides of Christ, Australia). This fabulous short was written and directed by Trudi Houston who was an Art Teacher in Narrabri in the 1990’s where she lived on sheep farms and was given her first working dog. Her Narrabri experience provided an initial inspiration for the films screenplay.
