Best Australian Shorts 2021 Program:

Roborovski– Roborovski follows an eponymous thimble sized hamster, who spends his days in Marvin’s Pet Shop, hoping to find a family.  However, when he is constantly overlooked by the people and animals around him, his seething resentment and intense jealousy soon takes hold and the murderous side of little Roborovski is released.

In the picture-book town -of Collector, a young girl and her gang of rogue environmentalists are trying to save the planet as the world goes into lockdown. The main target of the rebellion? The girl’s very own father.

Sparkles -A 30-something-year-old Down Syndrome woman leaves her past behind, and runs away from a small country town, heading towards the city.  Along her journey, she makes an unlikely friendship with a Drag Queen from the Outback, teaching us all not to be afraid to celebrate who we are.

This Town Ain’t Big Enough For The Both Of Us -Two rival pickpockets clash in an increasingly risky game of cat-&-mouse.

System Error -Every day, George works his job at a dingy convenience store, desperately hoping for a friend – but George is also an immobile robotic service unit, and immobile service units do not have friends.  Not yet anyway.

The Exit Plan -In an overpopulated future, an elderly woman is visited by a young government official to ensure she is complying with the government’s new “Exit Plan” policy, but, when he interrogates her further he soon realizes she has her own ‘plan’ for him.
