FRESHFLIX x Australians in Film

Freshflix are teaming up with AiF in Los Angeles to present a special best-of season off the back of their Emerging Filmmaker Conference at Raleigh Studios, Hollywood on October 1. The upcoming Freshflix will see the brightest shining new talents of Australian independent film taking on the silver screen.

After five stunning seasons of Freshflix Film Festival, 2017 is proving to be bigger than ever! We're back to showcase the best in Aussie shorts for this very special event in Los Angeles.

Entries are only open to members of Australians in Film.

Our past events have set the tone with a blazing sunsets, live music and art and a heck of a cinematic experience... One set on a clifftop amidst the distant roar of crashing waves, another two warehouse parties with a Japanese food truck and banging great inner city vibes, and the past season featuring a banquet feast followed by a film party in a craft brewery.

There will be awards.

There will be beverages.

And by golly, there will be a sensational time had by all.

Open for submissions of films under 12 mins. AiF members only for this season.

Full international season submissions to open in October.

    Although I wasn't able to attend the screening of my short film. The communication was great! Got some feedback on our screening too. Definitely worth the price. Will definitely submit my next film and hopefully attend one day!
