film freo 24

This years Film Freo 24 short film festival was held in the historic Packenham Street Art Space in Fremantle this weekend, where some serious fast-moving and creative filmmakers came together and delivered some very cool short films set in iconic Fremantle locations.

In just 24 hours, each group was given a location, (which included Rottnest Island, Fremantle Prison, Mojos Bar to name a few) and produced a film which somehow incorporated the "Fremantle Doctor" in some way or another.

There were certainly some standouts - and with an audience vote - the overall winner was 'OUT OF ORDER: disobedient dancers' directed by Alex Maciver. Shot in just one take, Alex certainly got the audience laughing with his hilarious narration and his talented drill dancers... All the films will be added to their youtube page in the coming week, so check back in later to view them all for yourself!

In the mean time - here are a couple of snaps from the screening...
