FROM humble beginnings at a New South Wales high school in 1991 to a touring attraction that receives 2500 entries, Flickerfest has grown exponentially.

Screening at Camelot Outdoor March from tomorrow until Sunday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science-accredited festival will feature 200 short films from Australia and around the world.

Festival director Bronwyn Kidd, who came to the Flickerfest team after its Balmain High School debut, said its diversity each year kept her in the role.

“I have been with Flickerfest for 20 years; the focus is on quality,” she said.

“We usually have a good mix, which is fabulous, but there are more comedies this year.

“Over the years it is great to see film makers get braver in their storytelling.”

Former Luna Palace employee Renee Rutgrink’s 13-minute film Adult School will screen in the Best of Australian category as part of the festival.
