International Programs

The St Kilda Film Festival is proud to partner with an international film festival each year, screening a program of short films the festival specially curates for our audience. With international film festival directors and programmers invited to the St Kilda event each year, Australian filmmakers are given the opportunity to showcase their works, network with key industry personnel and learn about the festival circuit. Many Australian short films featured in the St Kilda Film Festival have gone on to be screened at international festivals due to these partnerships.

Previous partners have included Interfilm Berlin, Cork Film Festival, Annecy International Animated Film Festival, SXSW and most recently Palm Springs International Shortfest and Short Shorts Film Festival Asia.
