The Asia Society is proud to present Australian Short Film Today’s annual New York screening, its long-time home base. This 90-minute program features eclectic short films from Down Under, including wry Australian humor, dark comedy, live action drama and clever animation. This year’s films include: the Tropfest winner for 2017, The Mother Situation, a dark comedy directed by well known Australian actor, Matt Day; A Writer and Three Script Editors Walk Into a Bar, a three-minute comedy of the agony of screenwriting; Identical, a mockumentary directed by and starring identical twins, Mark and Brett Nichols (sometimes it’s better not to ask if identical twins are identical in every way); and The Dam, a drama about feelings that no longer can be contained, directed by Brendon McDonall, who’s award winning short film, All God’s Creatures, was screened in the Australian Short Film Today program at the Asia Society last year.
Curated by Paul Thompson, Associate Professor, NYU Tisch School of the Arts and former Head of Film and Television at Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS), assisted by Harris B. Pacey and Madison Davis, two NYU Tisch students in Cinema Studies.
Underwritten by the Chris and Francesca Beale Foundation and sponsored by the Australian Consulate-General in New York, Advance, and American Australian Association.Buy tickets/get more info now
