Frequently Asked Questions For Patrons


HOW DO I BUY TICKETS?

For all ticketing information, including hours of operation, rules and regulations, pricing and package specifics, go to the Ticket Information page. We offer three types of tickets with limited VIP tickets for sale for $150, General Admission tickets for sale for $75 and group General Admission tickets with 6 or more tickets for $60 each.


WHAT ARE THE FILMS RATED?

Many of our films have not yet been reviewed so therefore do not have a rating (G, PG, M, MA, R), and some scenes in the chosen films may offend some viewers. The Stellar Short Film Festival advises parental discretion, with viewers recommended to be aged 15 and over.


WHAT WILL BE GOING ON BESIDES MOVIES?

Stellar Short Film Festival is much more than just movies. Stellar is a boutique event, with a limited number of general admission tickets, and just 150 VIP tickets available to the public.


General Admission guests will receive entry to the Sculpture Park where they can wander through the bushland and enjoy an afternoon of outdoor art sculptures, live musical entertainment and lawn games, before settling in for the film festival with a gourmet picnic pack all included in the ticket price. Alcohol, coffee and other sweet delights will be available to purchase from local stallholders on the night.


Or, if you’re fast, you can purchase a VIP ticket and indulge in a cocktail-style dinner party complete with drinks before the film screenings, to be held in the private indoor gallery, with exclusive access to facilities and a VIP bar. You will also receive a gourmet show bag containing samples of fine local produce, enjoy dedicated entertainment, reserved seating, and an invitation to the Stellar after party.


WHAT IS THE TIMELINE FOR THE EVENING?

Gates open for VIP guests at 5:00pm for their exclusive cocktail dinner party. 

General Admission guests may arrive from 5.30pm.

Our film program will commence at around 7:30pm and is expected to run for around 2 hours. There will be a 30 minute interval mid way through the program.

VIP post-event drinks will be held in the gallery from 10:30pm-12:00am. 


CAN I BRING MY OWN FOOD AND DRINKS?

The event is fully catered so each attendee as part of their ticket price will receive a picnic pack (general admission tickets).

CAN I USE A CAMERA?

Cameras and phones can be used for still images with no flash photography allowed but video recording will not be permitted.


WILL IT BE A SEATED EVENT?

VIP ticket holders will have a special seated area set out, while General Admission ticket holders will need to bring their own picnic blankets, bean bags or low sitting chairs.


WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF IT RAINS ON THE NIGHT?

The Stellar Short Film Festival will go ahead in the event of light rain. Only in the event of severe weather will the event be cancelled and tickets refunded, which is at the event organisers' discretion.

Umbrellas will not be permitted for use in front of the screen due to obstructing the view for other attendees.
