It all started as a passionate conversation between Setting Sun Festival Director, Anna Bourozikas and Creativa Videos, it was all about films!.
The Setting Sun Short Film Festival is the largest and premier short film festival in the west. It is a filmmakers’ film festival and competition that provides Maribyrnong and the western suburbs with its own prestigious short film festival. In 2018, the festival is introducing a feature-length film section. The festival screens over five days at the prestigious Sun Theatre in Yarraville and includes a diverse range of programs and awards. It started off four years ago as a community festival, ‘the only film festival in the west about the west’ as they used to say in the beginning, promoting the large film making community living in Melbourne’s western suburbs, but it has grown significantly to become one of Melbourne’s biggest short film festivals attracting not only Melbourne’s top short film filmmakers but filmmakers from Australia and around the world, some of whom have flown in to pick up their awards. The festival is generously supported by a wide range of organisations and prominent members of the film community and we are honored to be one of the supporters for the second year in a row.
