Frankston filmmakers not short on talent A SERIES of short films made during last year’s lockdown will be screened at the Frankston Arts Centre later this month. The films were created by local residents for the 2020 Lockdown Short Film Competition. James Griffiths and Imogen Adeney were the major prize winners, and will have their work

screened at the Arts Centre. Brigitte Jarvis will have her short film The Endless Hourglass shown. “This film was inspired by poetry written by Lyn – a single 70-yearold woman, who continues to remain healthy and positive and write wonderful visceral poetry about her experience of daily life,” she said.

“She travels a great deal and her poetry is often like a journal of her adventures, so this poem about isolation is particularly poignant.” The films will be shown at a free event at the Frankston Arts Centre’s Cube 37 venue on 21 May from 6pm. Book a spot at www.thefac.com.au or phone 9784 1060.
