Three nights of cinema showcasing the best short films from around the world and closer to home will be at Narrogin’s Thornton Theatre from May 18-20. Short film festival Flickerfest is coming to town with a selection of works picked from a record field of 3200 entries. On Thursday, May 18, Narrogin audiences will be treated to a presentation of two shorts that were nominated for the 2023 Oscars. IVALU, a piece by Danish award-winning team Kim Magnusson and Anders Walter, will transport the community to Greenland on a stunning tour of the island’s vast landscape, while the animated Canadian film The Flying Sailor, based on a true story, is promised to delight. The Best of Australian Shorts program to be shown on May 19 will not only expose theatregoers to the best cinema Australia has to offer but provide patrons with a unique experience to meet Lata Periakarpan, Alexandra Eftos and Kate Separovich, who will introduce their film Good Fortune. Written by Periakarpan, Good Fortune tells the tale of a visit to a psychic that doesn’t go as planned. Karla Hart’s Wirnitj will also be on show, a WA-made film that tells Noongar elder Aden Eades’ supernatural tale of stones that fall from the sky. Quirky comedy The Fritz starring acclaimed Noongar actor Trevor Jamieson of Storm Boy fame will also be shown on Friday evening. The three-night festival will conclude with An Evening of Short Laughs on Saturday, May 20. Among the films shown will be comedies from French and Swedish filmmakers and the bizarre and funny An Ostrich Told Me the World is Fake and I Think I Believe It, a comedic stop-motion animation written, directed and animated by Australian filmmaker Lachlan Pendragon. The doors of Thornton Theatre will open at 7pm for each showing and films will play from 7.30pm. Tickets and more information can be found on the Flickerfest website.
