Check out some photos from the red carpet on the first two nights. There’s been a lot going on and we’ve kind of been too busy to keep you updated. Sorry, but hopefully you’ve been at the festival and so know anyway (or are following us on Twitter or Facebook).

We’re heading into the homestretch but there are still many more events today!

Apart from the very special events mentioned below, today also features our amazing short films program, with four of the filmmakers in attendance for a Q&A. One of them is a Tasmanian film, and one of them is a world premiere. Starts at 6 pm.

There are also free Mary Shelley Symposium talks, with the ridiculously talented duo of Tansy Rayner Roberts and Isabel Peppard. Tansy is talking all things Dr Who and monsters at 12 noon… At 1.30 Isabel will talk about her marvellous creations, the world her film Butterflies and her skills in stop motion and character design. Bring a coffee, bring a sandwich… bring friends!

View all today’s events through Facebook or on our website.
