Film feast

THREE short films about Vincent premiere at the Get Your Shorts On screening on Wednesday (July 7).

There is no Stopping Us tells the tale of our local radio station RTRFM that’s been broadcasting 24/7 for years, looking into what happens when the station goes into lockdown.

Pacing the Pool is the story of Richard Pace, who for the past 30 years has started his days with morning laps at Beatty Park.

We Had Mail is a celebration of Vincent letterboxes, from the humble to the grand, as they gradually become more disused. 

The three shorts are from a collaboration between Revelation Perth film festival and Vincent council to fund works by new filmmakers.

They screen alongside a solid lineup of other shorts, including a new work from Louise Bertoncini who made the hit Vincent film festival doco The Throwback, the story of a local video store and its beloved owner Melanie McIrnerney that went global and picked up international awards.

Bertoncini’s new short film Murder on the Dance Floor covers a 1925 incident when hundreds of people were dancing the foxtrot in the WA government house ballroom, when suddenly a gun went off.

Get Your Shorts On is at Luna Palace Leederville, book or head to eventbrite for tickets to the encore screening on Saturday July 10 at The Backlot.
