Lights camera action for much-loved film festival

The much-anticipated short film festival Flickrfest will make its way to the Western Downs in mid-September after an earlier pandemic induced postponement. 

Western Downs Regional Council confirmed Chinchilla, DalbyDrillham and Jandowae will host two programs as part of the national film tour showcasing some of the world's most innovative provocative and wildly entertaining short films.

Community and Cultural Development Councillor Kaye Maguire said even though it was disappointing having to cancel the original event due to Covid-19, she's thrilled to hear the film festival is returning to the region.
