Steph Vajda of Ferment Collaborate has taken on the General Manager role with the West End Film Festival

The West End Film Festival (WEFF) is an Australian short film competition held in one of Australia’s most vibrant communities, Brisbane’sWest End.

WEFF was established in 2009 by a group of Brisbane filmmakers who identified the need for an annual Brisbane-based film festival that concentrates purely on the medium of short film. With Sydney hosting the likes of TropFest, and Melbourne hosting the St Kilda Film Festival, it was obvious that the Brisbane film community was crying out for a short film festival they could call their own.

Steph joins Festival Director Mike Witt and West End Community Association members Erin Evans and Jacqui Walters on the production team and aims to grow the annual event in West End and develop a touring and professional development program for regional film makers over the coming years.
