Kimberley Short Film Festival Success!

Posted on March 3, 2017

The Kimberley Short Film Festival finishes this week with a huge final event in Broome after a sell out run in Perth. Thanks to the hundreds of locals in Bicton, Joondalup, Mount Lawley and Perth who came along to show their support for Kimberley conservation and enjoy an evening of short films about the nature and culture of the Kimberley. 

We have been delighted with the popularity of the event and how much awareness has been raised about Kimberley conservation. Local politicians have been paying attention too, with candidates for the major parties coming to the events to say what their parties will do to protect the Kimberley in the future. We are also extremely grateful to all the filmmakers and our friends in the Kimberley for helping us to source the films, and to Dan at Illusory Film for the videography and Josh and the team from Matrix for their projection expertise. Here are some of the best shots from the events for you to enjoy.

Update May 2017: we are now putting on 4 more screenings in late May/early June for those who missed out last time, you can get your free tickets here!
