Grab the popcorn and watch some great films

QUIRKY, humorous, beautiful - the magic of film is hitting the big screen and it's not your everyday mainstream movies.

Dale Miinchow is passionate about films and is looking forward to tonight's Flickerfest event.

As the president of the Film & Arts Mackay, Mr Miinchow said the Flickerfest film festival was an opportunity for people to see different styles of film and appreciate the work that goes into making them.

The festival was an opportunity to see the world from the perspective of other cultures and watch amazing cinematography.

Mr Miinchow said people shouldn't assume all films would have subtitles.

And many of films will have well-known actors including Paul McDermott with his film Ghostbear.

Celebrating its 28th year in 2019, Flickerfest remains Australia's leading Academy Accredited and BAFTA recognised short film festival.

Flickerfest will be screened for two nights at the Central Queensland Conservatorium of Music.

The Best of Australian Shorts program will be shown tonight from 7.30pm and Short Laughs Comedy program will be screened on tomorrow from 7.30pm.

The Flickerfest programmes present a selection of entertaining, inspiring and award-winning films hand-picked from the festival's 2700 entries. Tickets are available from www. flickerfest.com.au/tour/mackay-qld/
