In the past 13 years, Fully Flared Films have made a number of short films, musical productions, live films and events. They ran The Short Crap Film Festival for 4 years, its purpose, to create further exposure to new and young filmmakers with what we believe is talent yet to be recognised.

In 2006 Fully Flared Films created 'The XPOSED International Queer Film Festival Berlin'. A festival that sets out to XPOSE weird, funny, disturbing queer short films from Australia around the world. It is held during the pride month celebrations in Berlin.

Fully Flared Films are looking for production companies who wish to join in co-production ventures in Australia and Internationally with the outlook to creating unique ways of telling stories be it in feature form, theatre, dance, musical, short form or new media.
