SHORT AND SWEET: Two hours, 15 films, all local flavour

A SMORGASBORD of local film making produce will be laid out for the public to sample on Sunday afternoon.

For the fourth time the Pelican Playhouse will present the Bent Bridge Film Festival, showcasing the short films of local film makers.

With films varying in length from 30 seconds to 25 minutes and a wide variety of subject matters, organisers Wendy Gibbs, Danny Loyden and Sammi Lovejoy have catered for many tastes.

"We've got Wendy's film of the Centenary of Anzac horse ride from Copmanhurst to Grafton, a music video called Burning Horse, which involved a band called the Honeyed Knives playing while we burn a 16-foot high bamboo horse and many more," Mr Loyden said.

The film Mr Loyden and Ms Lovejoy produced as a result of their Yulgilbar Fellowship $10,000 travelling grant is bound to be a festival highlight.

After the award the couple travelled to New York in July they met the founder of the Brooklyn Fishing Club, a group of dedicated anglers who fish the Hudson River and the five boroughs of New York City.

"We didn't go there to make a documentary, but this just happened while we were there," Ms Lovejoy said.

The festival opens from 2pm on Sunday. Entry is $10 and $5 for school children.
