//Thirteen & Co director Armand de Saint-Salvy's 'The Craft' short film gets the nod from Flickerfest

Screen Shot 2019-01-11 at 9.13.15 am.jpgDirector Armand de Saint-Salvy's short film The Craft has been accepted to screen at the Academy Accredited Flickerfest's 28th International Short Film festival this Saturday night - 12th January 2019. It will be film's world premiere competing in the 'Australian Competition' category.

Featuring a dramatic and emotive performance from rising young actress Zoe Terakes playing opposite the experienced Helen Thomson, the short film tells the story of a Hollywood acting guru who challenges a young actress to confront her demons in order to maximise her potential.

The Craft is 11 minutes of suspense from writer director Armand de Saint-Salvy, who is more well known for his commercial comedy work - in 2018 he won a AWARD Gold Pencil for his work "The Big Deal" and more recently entertained everyone with his popular "Meet Grant" award film for the 2018 MADC All Stars.

Says Saint-Salvy: "Amazing narrative drives me - whether it's a short film or great commercial work. I really can't wait to see the audience reaction to the film up on a big screen."Screen Shot 2019-01-11 at 9.14.00 am.jpg

Says Charity Downing, EP, //Thirteen & Co: "Making short films is always a challenge. We're proud of the efforts of our incredible cast and crew and their continued passion and commitment to this project."

Since launching in 1991, Flickerfest has grown to become Australia's only Academy accredited international short film festival and one of the most influential short film events in the world.

Flickerfest runs from 11- 20 January 2019 at Bondi Beach, Sydney.

I had the pleasure of seeng this well crafted piece at Flickerfest on Saturday.

It takes a special film to cut through all the other noise in the short film world and Armand and his team have done this superbly. A stand out piece.
