AUSTRALIAN SHORT FILM TODAY, the short film wing of AUSTRALIAN INTERNATIONAL SCREEN FORUM in New York, is an international traveling roadshow featuring award-winning Australian short filmmakers from the past year. It provides a unique showcase for industry and cinephiles to view a curated selection of rising stars of the Australian screen industry.
This year’s 90-minute selection includes the drama JUDAS COLLAR which won best narrative short film at Austin Film Festival and is Academy Award eligible; the mysterious NURSERY RHYMES which was nominated for best narrative short at the Australian Academy of Cinema & Television Arts; AN ACT OF LOVE featuring identical twins, which is the Australia Directors’ Guild winner; the poignantly reminiscent HIGH SCHOOL LOVER which premiered at Flickerfest; a cyber take on love with A QUICK LOVE STORY which had its global premiere at Australian Film Today in New York to audience acclaim; and a ringer from New Zealand, FIRE IN CARDBOARD CITY, an animated disaster movie that premiered at Tribeca, with The New Yorker calling it “clever and freewheeling.”
