COVIDSafe Attendance

St Kilda Film Festival is closely following advice from the Victorian Government regarding the current COVID-19 outbreak, and resulting lockdown in Melbourne. We are providing updates on our website as well as our social accounts on the status of the physical events planned for the remainder of the Festival, as well as contacting ticket-holders that may be affected by cancellations.

Rest assured St Kilda Film Festival remains committed to showcasing Australian short films online for the duration of the event. Stay safe out there.
