Trasharama A-Go-Go is an annual low-budget/no-budget short film festival started in 1997 by Dick Dale of Adelaide bands Gacy's Place and Kamikaze. Although it was started in Adelaide, South Australia the festival has gained local and national sponsorship allowing it to grow slightly in size and a lot in popularity and now tours Australia with screenings in most Australian states.[1][2][3][4] Trasharama A-Go-Go is promoted as "Australia's NASTIEST Short Film FESTERval".[5] Although no festival was held in 2010, the festival returned the following yearand has been held annually since then.[6]
