Flickerkids - Flickerfest 2012

Last weekend we headed down the road to check out  what Flickerfest had on offer for kids.  Based in Bondi Beach, Flickerfest has grown to become Australia's only competitive International Short Film Festival with entries coming from across the globe.

Even though it wasn't what you would call cinema weather  there was a great crowd of families attending - some even had their swimming gear ready for a dip after the screening. The session screened eight shorts with a fantastic combination of animation and live action. Films represented were from Australia, United Kingdom. Norway, Germany and the USA.

My kids favourites were:
The Itch of the Golden Nit
A BBC production that involved thousand of children across the UK contributing drawings, sound effects and story ideas.
and Australian productions Toot Toot and Play lunch.

Extras
  • For ages 6 - 12 years
  • The bar featured goodies that were preservative free and not junky
  • After the session head out to the balcony with your drink for the best view of  Bondi Beach
  • Bring your swimming gear and make the most of Bondi Beach
  • If you are not based in Bondi Beach - consider public transport
