The Stellar Short Film Festival is a runaway success story in our own backyard. Within just two short years, the festival has amassed a loyal following eager to get their hands on tickets for the third big year on Saturday, February 29. Set among the picturesque grounds of McClelland Sculpture Park + Gallery in Langwarrin, Stellar is a night like no other. Showcasing 12 of the best award-winning Australian short films from 2019, it’s an evening under the stars mingling with the stars on their panel of industry judges.
The Best Performance award will again be sponsored by the Frankston Arts Centre, with this year’s winner Rick Davies returning to Stellar, this time to take his place on the judging panel. Michael Caton, the star of one of Australia’s most loved feature films —The Castle — has confirmed he’ll be returning for the third year, as will actor and director Scott Major, who’ll be back as the MC for the evening.
General admission ticket-holders can relax with music from DJ Nige and his Kombi van, or wander around the park before enjoying the films and their delicious Buddha bowl, made by the renowned team from Finesse Catering, all included in the ticket price. There’ll also be boutique gin from Seaford distillers That Spirited Lot, plus wines, beers, Roseade, snacks and coffee available for purchase.
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.
Stellar is proudly supported by major sponsor Illumin8, the Mount Eliza accounting firm with a whole lot of personality. Follow Stellar on Facebook and Instagram @stellarshortfilmfestival for more announcements. Tickets are on sale from December 1 from www.stellarshortfilmfestival.com.au
