THE PROGRAM

Shorts Relief respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of this land, the peoples of the Kulin Nation and pay respect to their Elders, past, present and emerging, as well as to all First Nations’ communities around the State of Victoria.

The following blocks run at approximately 55 minutes each. Ticket price includes all screenings and the panel, plus networking opportunities in the foyer and lounges. Drinks and snacks are available at the bar at bar prices (with a percentage of bar profits going towards our final fundraising tally – so we encourage you to enjoy all that the bar has to offer – responsibly, of course!)

In response to requests from our audience inquiring if they could donate to Wildlife Victoria under Shorts Relief’s name after the event, we have set up a GoFundMe page for that purpose, where all monies raised via that page will be paid directly to Wildlife Victoria via the Paypal Giving Fund AND all donations made via this facility are 100% tax deductible. Click on the link below if you wish to be one of our donors and increase the impact of the event via further donations:

Thank you for your support.
