2010 was a bumper year for Australian cinema. Yet no Australian film performed as consistently and as spectacularly as "The Lost Thing", winning over both audiences and juries worldwide.

This 15 minute animated gem was the winner of the Annecy Cristal (France), the Yoram Gross Award (Sydney Film Festival), the Grand Prix at the Melbourne International Film Festival, Best Australian Short at Flickerfest, the IF Award and the AFI Award (as well as countless other international prizes).

In February 2011, "The Lost Thing" won the Oscar® for Best Animated Short. In this exclusive performance composer Michael Yezerski and friends perform his original score live to picture.

The music has been re-imagined and re-arranged for this very special premiere event. Experience Shaun Tan and Andrew Ruheman's masterpiece in a whole new way. With thanks to Sophie Byrne and Passion Pictures Australia.


TEDxSydney 2011 took place on Saturday 28 May 2011 at CarriageWorks. Tens of thousands of people enjoyed the day: 800 in the theatre, over 1,000 via big screen simulcast in The Forum, up to 48,000 online via YouTube ... and up to 80,000 tuning in to ABC Radio National. It was a grand day. About TEDx, x = independently organised event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organised events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organised TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organised.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
