Festival Name: Bondi Short Film Festival
Location: Sydney, Australia
The Bondi Short Film Festival was established by Francis Coady in 2000. Initially the festival began as a favor to his friends who had missed out on entering films in other festivals in Sydney as they had already screened their films in other states of Australia. Coady thought this was insane and ensured that film makers entering the Bondi Short Film Festival should not be restricted in any way.
“I was watching some incredible short films made by my friends and their associates and no one was able to see these films in Sydney. So I just pulled a party together and screened them. Simple as that! ” said Francis Coady.
Starting at the North Bondi RSL in 2000, the Bondi Short Film Festival quickly out-grew the venue and two years later moved to its new home, the Bondi Pavilion.
