Australia's success on the international festival circuit is continuing with the selection of two films into the Oberhausen International Short Film Festival, which has announced its 2008 program.

Chainsaw (d: Dennis Tupicoff) has been selected to screen in the International Competition, while Lucille (d: Tali Gal-on) will screen in the Children's and Youth Film Competition.

Both directors are gaining significant international screenings: Chainsaw has been selected for numerous festivals including the Annecy International Animated Film Festival in June; and another short film from director Tali Gal-on, Crooked, has also been selected to screen at Annecy.
