Tickets are selling fast for this weekend's Noosa International Film Festival (NIFF) with its comedy session at Land & Sea Brewery selling out weeks ago.
"We have a whole weekend of short films to see, seven screenings in fact to choose from," said Festival President Holly Pittman.
NIFF will present four screenings at The J Theatre all day on Saturday 27th from 10am.
"We're encouraging filmgoers to make a day of it at The J," said Ms Pittman.
"Between film sessions you can enjoy the festive vibe with local music and entertainment, food vendors and The J Bar. Each film session is different so why not try them all!"
The first session at The J is dedicated to filmgoers who love to be thrilled and chilled. Wake In Fright is the theme featuring eight short films that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat.
Session 2 is dedicated to Women & Film with eight featured shorts made by women or about women.
Stories We Tell will delight those with a sense of fun, with subjects as diverse as action hero transformations, love and revenge, living with a guilty conscience and real-life inspirations.
Rounding out Saturday's screenings at The J at 4pm is Based on a True Story – a collection of shorts celebrating interesting locals, inventors, prime ministers, and artists. A number of colourful, enterprising characters share their lives with us.
Saturday's program finishes with the NIFF Short Film Awards Show.
"This special event celebrates the 60 plus filmmakers in competition and is the best place to watch all 10 of the winning films of this year's festival.
"We're honoured to have founding patron, John Seale join us to present the filmmaker awards. John is a legend in the filmmaking industry, being a multi-Academy Award nominated cinematographer and winning an Oscar for his work on The English Patient.
"The Awards night is always a lot of fun and we're looking forward to welcoming the filmmakers to Noosa for the festival from all over the country."
Short films and a feature documentary will also be screening at the Eumundi School of Arts Hall on Sunday 28th.
