First held in 2017, NiSFF, is an IMDb registered live screening festival event of short films at The Royal Exchange Hybrid Performance Space & Cinema in Newcastle Australia that celebrates short films and their makers from all around the world and that is open in all genres. NiSFF looks to present an accessible and cheap platform for filmmakers to have their work screened live before an audience.
Newcastle is a city with a population of approximately 700,000 about 90 mins north of Sydney NSW Australia.
All films selected for screening will be awarded an Official Selection laurel. Best in genre awards will be awarded laurels from Officially Selected films in International, Australian and Regional state NSW categories. However, NiSFF retains the right not to award a ‘Best of…’ award in a category if no film submitted in that category is of a standard the judges consider to be suitable. All Officially Selected films are Nominations for an award at the festival and can be registered as such on IMDb. We are interested in an imaginative use of the cinematic language and form as well as good comedies, dramas, doco’s, art films, experimental, avant garde & genre films (horror, slasher, sci-fi, fantasy etc)
