About the Pigdon Street Festival:- 

The Pigdon Street International Film Festival was established a few years ago when group of artists and film lovers banded together in the Molbourne's inner northern suburbs, projecting their short films, documentaries and audio-visual art guerilla-style throughout the suburbs. Vacant lots, blank alley walls and bedsheets in backyards served as the silver screens for the first-ever Pigdon Street International Film Festival. The Festival has blossomed since these humble beginnings, moving to private screening venues and showcasing art and film from countries around the world to it's dedicated Melbourne fanbase.
