Answer the call for your chance to be screened to CinefestOZ audiences through our popular Side Bar program.
After a stellar program at the festival last year, CinefestOZ is excited to announce that the Short Film Entries are now open for 2016.
CinefestOZ presents a wide variety of short films at side bar venues across the South West region throughout the festival. The selection is short-listed from films submitted by filmmakers Australia wide.
CinefestOZ will be accepting entries for two categories:
- The Filmmakers of the Future category is open to Australian filmmakers aged 18 to 25. CinefestOZ is proud to support young filmmakers as they work towards a career in the industry.
- The Australian Open category is open to filmmakers across the country, for all short films between 1 and 15 minutes.
CinefestOZ audiences will be shown the final selection of West Australian, Australian and French short films at the popular side bars, held at lively locales in Busselton, Bunbury, Dunsborough, Augusta and Margaret River during the festival. The short film screenings showcase WA and Australia’s filmmaking talent along interactive discussions with filmmakers.
“This opportunity is fantastic publicity for new filmmakers, who will be invited to participate in Q&A’s at their screenings and their audiences will include local, national and international film industry guests,” said CinefestOZ CEO Malinda Nixon.
Submissions are open from 22 April and will close 4 June 2016.
