West End Film Festival

27 May 2017 - 28 May 2017

The West End Film Festival (WEFF) is an Australian short film competition held in one of Australia’s most vibrant communities, Brisbane’s West End.

With Sydney hosting the likes of TropFest, and Melbourne hosting the St Kilda Film Festival, it was obvious that the Brisbane film community was crying out for a short film festival they could call their own. WEFF was established in 2009 by a group of local filmmakers who understood the need for an annual Brisbane-based film festival concentrating purely on the medium of short film.

The festival only shows films created by Australian filmmakers or which are shot in Australia.
