Ringing in 20 weeks until the Stellar Short Film Festival, we’ve picked a film that’s impossible to ignore! Bursting onto the cinema scene in 1994 and going off like whistles at Mardi Gras is the feel-good surprise Aussie hit ‘The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert’. This comedy-drama tells the story of three friends (played by Hugo Weaving, Terrance Stamp and Guy Pearce) who travel from Sydney to Alice Springs in their tour bus named ‘Priscilla’, encountering kooky characters along the way, as they prepare to put on a 3-week drag show. With an irresistibly fun soundtrack, it’s no surprise the film became a hugely successful musical – in fact its 10th anniversary Australian tour is launching at Melbourne’s Regent Theatre in January 2018! As well as winning hearts around the world, the film also won an Academy Award for Best Costume Design, and is now cemented as a cult classic. Not bad for “a cock in a frock on a rock”!

Glamour and films go hand-in-hand, and the Stellar Short Film Festival will keep lovers of the fine things in life very happy! When tickets go on sale on Friday, 1 December, a strictly limited number of just 100 VIP tickets will be available to the general public. Stellar VIPs will indulge in a sumptuous cocktail dinner party – complete with an open bar – held in the private indoor gallery, with exclusive access to facilities and with dedicated entertainment. When the sun sets and the films roll, our VIP ticket holders will enjoy reserved seating under the stars, and receive a gourmet show bag containing samples of fine local produce. As if that isn’t enough, VIPs will also be invited to the Stellar after party, where they will rub shoulders with the magic makers of the Australian film industry. How’s that for a night of making memories?!

It's been Melbourne's best kept secret for way too long, but finally Frankston is getting its time to literally and figuratively (sun)shine! Affectionately known as 'Funkytown' to adoring locals, we have a better beach than any bayside Melbourne suburb, and our culinary scene and major events are burgeoning thanks to our committed @frankstoncity . Case in point, the scrumptious Seaside Street Food Festival from @thefoodtruckpark_ ! Today's the last day, so mosey on down to the Frankston Pier and enjoy the food and the second-to-none “Stellar” sunset. And follow @visitfrankston for more Funkytown fun!

In 1996, Australia's own Geoffrey Rush really made his mark as an actor with the lead role in 'Shine'. His portrayal of pianist David Helfgott won worldwide acclaim and earned him the Best Actor Oscar in 1997.
It's an emotional movie with incredible performances, not only from Rush (who we now know steals the show virtually every time he appears onscreen) but with a nuanced and underrated performance from Noah Taylor.
Shine was not without controversy, with bickering amongst David's siblings as to how accurate a portrayal of his life it was, and claims that Helfgott's piano skills were sub-par for a musician of his supposed caliber. With just 21 weeks to go until the Stellar Short Film Festival, Shine still wins a glowing review from our team.

Today’s Stellar task was a visit to the Mornington Racecourse Market – we’re on the hunt for the best local sweet treat makers! As part of the Stellar Short Film Festival experience, we’ll be inviting a select group to set up a stall at our mini dessert market. We’re thinking gourmet popcorn, doughnuts, brownies, fudge and biscuits and of course really good coffee. What type of premium snacks would you like to see at Stellar? Leave a comment below and the name of any producers you think would be a perfect fit for Stellar.

Are you curious about what sort of short films you can expect to see at the Stellar Short Film Festival? The answer's simple – the best of the best! We work a little differently from other film festivals – instead of doing a callout for entries, Stellar is by invitation only. We'll curate the films to be shown at Stellar from the winners of over 40 different short film festivals held across Australia in 2017. We will shortlist 100 award winning and acclaimed short films and then (with the aid of some nice wine and cheese), we will select our program of the very best 'Stellar 12', which will compete for great prizes on the night of 3rd March, 2018! For the good people of Melbourne, it really will be the cream of the film-making crop, brought right to your door!

Coming in at Number 22 in our weekly countdown to Stellar Short Film Festival is another of our favourite Australian films “The Year My Voice Broke”. This 1987 coming of age drama is set in a NSW country town in the 1960s, and is based on the childhood of its director, John Duigan. It tells the tale of socially awkward Danny (Noah Taylor) , who falls in love with his best friend Freya (Loene Carmen), who in turn is in love with the town’s high school rugby star, Trevor (Ben Mendelsohn). The plot includes a dash of mystery surrounding a mysterious locket, a pregnancy (guess who), juvenile detention, and death. With superb performances and a moving storyline, it managed to win five AFI awards (Best Film, Best Direction, Best Original Screenplay, Best Actor in a Supporting Role and Members Prize) which in a topsy-turvy move is what convinced Hoyts to give it a cinematic release AFTER the awards ceremony! It then went on to win hearts across the country and become a box office hit, and now here it is on the Stellar list! Do you rate it?

So excited to see an Australian film doing so well! Congrats to everyone involved in “That’s Not Me” film on selling out your screening @raindance_film_festival in Leicester Square.
We loved your film @melbfilmfest and especially liked the local Frankston references. We hope you enjoy sharing your film with the rest of the world.
Counting down to screening some of Australia’s best short films at the first ever Stellar Short Film Festival!
