Melbourne Actors out in full force for St Kilda Film Festival Opening Night last night – and oh what fun it was! With hundreds of Melbourne’s creatives coming together to celebrate film in it’s wonderful short form! A brilliant celebration of film and film industry as a whole – the Brave Studios crew were there representing Melbourne Actors and we couldn’t have been prouder. The films were pretty great also! The most popular being “Five more Minutes” a 45 second Horror film that proved you don’t have to even be on screen for a minute to scare the bejeezus out of an audience!
Screening from May 21 – 30 the top 100 short films from around Australia along with other special screenings and events – this is a great way to support Australia’s emerging film makers. Bringing people together since 1983, SKFF is the longest running short film festival in the world. It’s a wonderful reminder that the Australian film industry alive and kicking, bringing together not only actors and directors, but other important creatives within the industry such as producers, writers, agents and casting directors – we have such a fantastic industry with so many talented people and festivals like this are a brilliant reminder of this. Housed in the iconic Palais Theatre in St Kilda, this is a great opportunity to enjoy this beautiful theatre that is such an important part of Melbourne’s culture. The St. Kilda Film Festival were kind enough to offer Brave Studios Students discounted tickets and they jumped at the chance!
So check out the film guide on the St Kilda Film Festival website and go and support Aussie films, you won’t regret it!
