For the third consecutive year, Sydney Film Festival will premiere four short films made by recipients of the Lexus Short Film Fellowship.

As 2018 Fellows, each filmmaker received $50,000 to bring their short film projects to life.

The Lexus Australia Short Film Fellowship develops and fosters new talent by allowing young filmmakers to be assessed by key industry figures and premiere their work at Sydney Film Festival.

The Fellowship provides a launching pad for the careers of emerging Australian talent and ultimately contributes to the longevity of the medium, and the Australian filmmaking industry.
