The St Kilda Film Festival is Australia’s oldest and largest short film festival.
Held in May/June every year, the Festival kicks off with an Opening Night ceremony to rival the Festival De Cannes, with more than 3000 guests descending on the stunning Palais Theatre on the St Kilda Foreshore for a screening of Festival highlights. Guests then move to St Kilda’s grand town hall, a century-old monument to classical revival architecture that hosts Melbourne’s premier opening night party each year.
Over the following week, Melbourne’s legendary Astor Cinema becomes a hive of activity and creativity. The Festival showcases the best and brightest short filmmakers in the Top 100 Competition Screenings, while Australia’s finest music videos are played on the big screen at the very hip SoundKILDA screening and party. Throughout the Festival, filmmakers are invited to network and explore their craft at a series of filmmaker development events. Then, on Closing Night, the Festival is wrapped up with a very festive awards ceremony and Closing Night party.
In 2013 the Festival grew from six to ten days, with
an expanded program including special event
