CinéfestOZ Short Film program calls for entries

Films are invited for selection to the CinefestOZ Short Film program 2015.

CinefestOZ with the Australian Film and Television Institute WA (FTI) is calling for submissions for the Short Film Selection as part of this year’s Film Festival (26 – 30 August 2015). This is an exciting collaboration between Western Australia’s peak screen arts association and the State’s premier destination film festival.

The CinéfestOZ Short Film program has two categories; WA Filmmakers of the Future (18-25 yrs) and Australian Open. Submissions close 22 May 2015.

The final selection of WA, Australian and French short films is screened at CinéfestOZ as part of its popular Side Bar program. Side Bar screenings showcase filmmaking talent through events with interactive filmmaker Q&As in Busselton, Bunbury, Dunsborough, Margaret River and Augusta.

“This is an opportunity for new filmmakers to showcase their short films at often sold-out events at CinéfestOZ. The audiences include local and national film industry guests,” said CinéfestOZ CEO Malinda Nixon.

“The short film Side Bar events build on the successes of previous years, where audiences have responded well to the small bar format and filmmaker Q&A sessions,” she said.

FTI CEO Paul Bodlovich said CinéfestOZ Short Film Selection was an exciting process that would uncover brand new talent and put the spotlight on emerging filmmakers.

“It is a particularly exciting time in the Western Australian film industry at the moment and it is events such as CinéfestOZ which provide the leverage necessary to support this growth through the great level of national and international talent and film this festival attracts,” said Paul.
