Heart of Gold International Short Film Festival

5 October 2017 - 8 October 2017

Held in richly historic Gympie, Australia from 5-8 October 2017, Heart of Gold International Short Film Festival (HOGIFF) is one of the gems in the crown of Australian short film festivals. It’s mission is to showcase well-crafted, nourishing and uplifting short films from around the world.

The four-day programme typically sees an opening night, gala awards evening, ‘filmmaker presents’ slots and up to 30 sessions cram-packed with about 120 short films from all genres that best capture HOGIFF’s vision to screen films that are: positive, witty, whimsical, entertaining, joyous, uplifting, quirky, enlightening, and ground breaking. They can be edgy, they can be thought-provoking and they can be downright hilarious – as long as they beat with a good heart!

The festival has become renowned for its high quality programme which is largely thanks to a very unique, methodical two-part screening system. All films are filtered through the festival’s artistic directors, and small groups of screeners that gather in lounge-rooms in Gympie, to review and score the countless submissions.
