The Heathcote Film Festival

Event completed for 2023

The 11th annual Heathcote Short Film Festival was held over the weekend of 1-2nd September with over 200 people attending across the 2 nights.

Showcasing local and international short films, there was something for everyone with comedies, dramas, animation and documentaries.
The festival was a huge success and we are pleased to announce the below winners of the Jury Prize and the 2 People’s Choice Awards.

People’s Choice voting was fierce with 3 films equally tied for second place on Friday night and only 1 vote determined the winner – it was that close!

We had a great event on the Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd September and will be back for 2024.
