The Reelife Short Film Festival is back for 2007, bigger and better than ever. Reelife celebrates issues-based filmmaking by young Australians 15-25. We emphasis using film to explore issues and reveal unique perspectives, not just show off technical skills (although they've also got plenty of those). The films that are presented are innovative, authentic and often moving.
The Reelife Short Film Festival is a celebration of Australia's talented young filmmakers, with 15 amazing films scheduled for the National tour. This year's finalists represent the four points of the nation with contributions ranging from Margaret River WA, Reynella SA, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne and more.
Young film makers of Australia have answered the call of the 2007 Reelife Short Film Festival with an incredible mix of intelligence, style and nuance that reflects a maturity and artistry that is very exciting for our next generation of filmmakers.
And this year, the festival has expanded to include extra screenings, including an out-of-competition Best of Young British screening of short films from the impressive young talent (15-25 year olds) Britain has to offer. Screened with the support of the British Council, it's your chance to see how our local talent stacks up against the edgy and innovative savviness of young British filmmakers.
This diverse and exciting selection of short films give a snapshot of the wide range of work by young film makers in the UK. All the films you see in the Reelife Best of British programme are from film makers who have graduated from film schools and art colleges in the UK in the last couple of years. The films range from whimsical 2D hand-drawn illustration and animation to gritty live-action, have been chosen to represent the diversity of the emerging UK film scene, have been shown by the British Council at film festivals in other parts of the world and should give Australian audiences a flavour of what we might expect to see from the next generation of UK film makers.
