Star power comes to Stellar


The Stellar Short Film Festival is bringing some big names to Frankston City. On Saturday, March 3, you’ll be wondering if you’re dreamin’ when both Stephen Curry and Michael Caton – the stars of one of Australia’s most loved feature films, The Castle – attend the premium outdoor short film festival as guest judges.

Held at the stunning McClelland Sculpture Park+Gallery in Langwarrin, Stellar will showcase 12 of the best award-winning Australian short films from 2017. The ‘Stellar 12’ will compete on the night for cash prizes, with Best Film and Runner-Up winners selected by the panel of judges (follow on Facebook and Instagram for more announcements soon), as well as an Audience Choice award. The charismatic Stellar MC for the evening is actor/producer/director/writer Scott Major.

General admission ticket holders can relax with an afternoon of musical entertainment from DJ Nige (with his 1970 Kombi van), play lawn games or wander around the park before enjoying the films and their gourmet picnic pack - all included in the ticket price.

VIP ticket holders will indulge in a cocktail-style dinner party in the indoor gallery, with drinks at the VIP bar before the screenings, plus receive a gourmet showbag of treats, dedicated live entertainment, reserved seating, and an invitation to the Stellar after-party.


There’ll be a mini dessert market featuring mouthwatering gourmet-flavoured popcorn, cookies, fudge, cupcakes and more from local producers, as well as a selection of Peninsula wines, beers, and coffee available for purchase.


Stellar is proudly supported by major sponsor Illumin8, the Mount Eliza accounting firm with a whole lot of personality.  Don’t miss the hottest new event on the entertainment calendar – it’s coming to Frankston City for one night only. Tickets are on sale now from
