St Kilda Film Festival offers 100 short films online for free

As Melbourne sinks into winter, the adepts of the short film gather to awaken the spirits of St Kilda.

There’s a rumbling around the film festival traps that they will never go back to their pre-Covid form, but the St Kilda version has discovered the pleasures of a festival which is offered for free, online, across Australia. 

The festival is very happy with this, even though this expanded audience has no direct interest in the Port Phillip Council, which sponsors the event and has never given up its determination to support short films.
