SBS Short Film Festival announced
July 29, 2019
SBS is pleased to announce the inaugural SBS Short Film Festival, premiering exclusively on SBS On Demand from September 13 - 15.
The festival will showcase 14 short films, over three days, from emerging Australian creatives.
The SBS Short Film Festival showcases an array of formats, subjects, topics and talent. Some films highlight the importance of friendship, family, culture and food, while others tackle topical issues such as Aboriginal child removals in the 1950s. While the shorts may be very different, they’re all heartfelt and heart-warming – there’ll be something for every viewer.
The SBS Short Film Festival is the product of the Short-Form Content Initiative, a commitment to providing increased opportunities for Australian creatives from diverse communities. Partnering with five of Australia's screen agencies, the initiative aims to increase the career development opportunities within diverse groups; all 14 films at the festival feature Australian creatives from underrepresented societies, including those from multicultural, Indigenous and LGBTIQ+ communities, and those living with disabilities.
