Below Five Zero is a new Film Festival created to provide a platform for films made with a budget of less than $50,000. With a focus on first time filmmakers, we are certain the festival will uncover very promising talent within Australia.
We are hoping to give filmmakers, young and old, more reason to pick up their equipment and make the most of what they have. With the ability to film on your phone and the cost of professional equipment dropping constantly, it’s never been easier to make a film. We want the festival to become encouragement for people to take the plunge, do what they love and put themselves out there.
‘Do the best with what you’ve got’
In addition to the screening of low budget Features and Shorts, the festival will feature panels and workshops hosted by Low Budget filmmakers who have achieved success in the past.
