CrabbesFest thrilled audiences on the big screen

SMALL school film stars and directors walked the red carpet on Friday night in Crabbes Creek for the Crabbesfest film festival.

Like a mini Tropfest Junior, CrabbesFest screened competing short films of five minutes or less in a program that thrilled its audience - children, parents and general community alike.

"The heat is definitely on for next year," festival director Linda Parlett said.

"Every-one had such a fantastic time and the evening was a resounding success"

Tweed Shire Mayor Barry Longland presented the trophies and winning prizes of three ipads were handed to Crabbes Creek Public School for its film 'Crabarella Takes a Stand'.

"The event attracted around 150 people. All the kids were awesome and had a great time," Ms Parlett said.

If anyone missed the premiere of the festival, do not fear, there's another chance to see the winning films at the Regent Cinema Murwillumbah, where they will be screened in a special school holidays showing on Monday, October 7.
