AUSTRALIA'S leading short film festival Flickerfest will roll into the Fraser Coast's Brolga Theatre on March 13.

A record 2300 entries were received for Flickerfest 2013 and only the top 100 shorts are selected in official competition, all handpicked to represent the most innovative, creative and cutting edge short films being produced in the world today.

Flickerfest's 46-venue national tour will screen entertaining, inspiring and an award-winning range of shorts, many of which are world or Australian premieres, giving local Flickerfest audiences the first look at the hottest short films in the world.

The Best of Australian Shorts program showcases some amazing Australian filmmaking talents and includes Lois, starring Academy Award nominated acting legend Jackie Weaver, which takes an ordinary women's story into the realms of Greek myth.

Another highlight is the quirky and highly crafted animation A Cautionary Tale about a little girl born with a peculiar quirk who must choose between conformity and self expression, starring the voices of David Wenham, Cate Blanchett and Barry Otto.

The Best of International programs are a collection of the most outstanding shorts in the world and include the delightful and whimsical Route 43 Miracle from Sweden, a humorous and bittersweet tale about a lonesome Swedish man's longing for something worthwhile and the quirky and hilarious Herd Leader from Canada, winner of the audience award at Cannes film festival, about Clara who is put in charge of her dead aunt's pug dog.

Flickerfest, presented by Renault, will be held at the Brolga on Wednesday, March 13, at 6.30pm.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for Arts Council members.
