The Ulster County Top Challenge has been selected to be screened at Queensland’s biggest short film festival, the Heart of Gold International Short Film Festival on the first weekend in October.

With carefully-crafted short films from around the world that deeply resonate with the viewer, the four-day programme includes up to 30 sessions of shorts from all genres that best capture Heart of Gold’s vision to screen films that are heart-warming, thought-provoking and entertaining.

With films from renowned international festivals such as Cannes, Sundance, Berlinale and Venice, past winners of the Heart of Gold Best Short film award include James Lucas and Mat Kirkby for The Phone Call (2014) and Lucy Gaffy for Dream Baby (2016), who went on to win an Academy Award and an AACTA respectively.
