"Destino, the magical Salvador Dali–Walt Disney collaboration that was begun in 1946, rescued from the archives by nephew Roy Disney, rushed by its producer Baker Bloodworth into competition at MIFF (Melbourne International Film Festival), and premiered at Annecy in June has won the City of Melbourne Grand Prix for Best Short Film".

I've heard of this one some time ago and it really sparked my interest...
Is there anywhere we can see the whole thing, preferably without visiting the Melbourne Film Festival?

You're kidding! Disney and Dali did a collaborative short film? I never knew about that...though I can't say I'm any kind of expert in Disney history really.

Is that image posted above actually from the film or representative of the look of it? Totally reminds me of the work of Todd Schorr (a must see):

I'd really love seeing this one also...any more info about it and if/when it will be publically released?

Well, AFAIK the image posted IS actually from the film itself (<<<LINK1>>>) ( Originally, this short movie was planned to be included as a sequence in the never finished film "Fantasia II" (1946). It was cancelled due to financial problems at Disney, just after WWII.

I read somewhere that Disney will be introduce the film to be taken into consideration for the next Academy Awards (Animated Short Film).

WIRED: Disney Reanimates Dali's Flick :
In 1946, Walt Disney and Salvador Dalí, in one of cinema's oddest collaborations, teamed up on a short film called Destino. But Disney's studio ran into financial trouble and put the unfinished film on the shelf.

Now, 57 years later, a team of Disney animators has finished what Dalí started. The six-minute film, spearheaded by Walt's nephew Roy E. Disney and producer Baker Bloodworth (Dinosaur), premiered at the Annecy Animation Festival in June and is currently touring festivals worldwide. Recent stops include the Telluride, Montreal and Venice festivals, along with the Melbourne International Film Festival, where it won the grand prize for best short film.
