The west’s premier film festival is back this month with a flood of screenings and events.

This year’s Setting Sun Film Festival attracted 60 entries, creating plenty of work for festival director Anna Bourozikas as she tackles the task of whittling them down to the festival finalists.

Ms Bourozikas said short films by experienced indie filmmakers, as well as emerging local talent, will be screened over four days at the iconic Sun Theatre in Yarraville.

There’ll also be a special ‘Kid’s Day’ at Footscray town hall.

An opening night event kicks off at 7pm, April 14. Sunday night’s screening will be followed by a presentation of the Sunnies, where up to $5000 of prizes up are for grabs.
