Swanpool Cinema will screen the 2018 final selections and prize-winning films from this year’s Benalla Shorts on Saturday, May 12, at 3pm.
One of the highlights will be the winner of Best Film, iRony, which was written, scripted and directed by Perth-based student Radheya Jegatheva.
His film explored the relationship between man and technology, told from the perspective of a phone.
Since the Benalla Shorts Competition in March this year, iRony has had international success, being screened in Australia, Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America.
In total iRony has won 62 awards at film festivals from all over the globe, most recently winning the Grand Prize in the International category at the ISCA International Student Creative Awards.
Also being screened is the winner of the local filmmaker award Munchies, directed by Hayley Warnock.
Munchies is a claymation film, which involves the lead character Herbert pleasantly spending the afternoon in his vegetable garden until he discovers something has been munching on his crops.
The Student Award went to The Ghoulies, directed by Harrison Lane, which will also be screened.
His film portrayed two brothers having their relationship tested when 11-year-old Cooper wanted to become a part of his older brother’s gang.
Many other short films will also be screened, so patrons can experience something for everyone.
