Welcome to Cinema Australia’s brand new weekly feature, Sunday Shorts.
You might recognise the name from our written features we’ve published in the past. We loved those features and so did you going by the amount of hits they received.
We’ve decided to change things up a little by screening a new short film every Sunday at 7.30pm AWST and 9.30pm AEST. We’ll still be inviting the filmmakers to write a little piece about their film, so we look forward to bringing you more of that.
Tonight’s short film is Distant Boats by writer/director/editor Jack Ralph. Check it out below because you’re in for a real treat – it’s a unique piece of short form filmmaker.
Sit back, relax and enjoy the film.
