About Setting Sun Short Film Festival

The Setting Sun Short Film Festival is the largest short film festival in  the west. It is a filmmakers’ film festival and provides Maribyrnong and the western suburbs with its own short film festival. It promotes the large film making community living in Melbourne’s western suburbs and recognises excellence in the craft of film making. There are three main categories for films to be entered:

western suburbs: comprising the bulk of awards to be given to filmmakers submitting films who live in the west OR don’t live in the west but have shot their film here

 metropolitan: comprising all films not shot in the west or by westie filmmakers

open: Animation, Best Acting Performance overall, People’s Choice.

The best films submitted will form the basis of the festival. They will screen at The Sun Theatre over a period of four days, 27-30 April 2017.  The festival has been created by Anna Bourozikas from Poppy Kat Media.
