Entries for the 2017 Cinesnaps Short Film Competition close on June 30.
The competition encourages South West students to explore the medium of film and use multi-media formats to produce and showcase their talents on the big screen.
Students need to be between 15 – 18 years to enter, and must work in small groups (max 6) to produce a 3-5-minute film using this year’s theme, Birthday Card.
To showcase the talents of this next generation of filmmakers, submissions are shortlisted with finalist short films screened at a glamorous, youth-focused, red carpet Grand Finale event during CinefestOZ Film Festival week.
Finalists receive feedback from a panel of high-profile Australian film industry professionals and the winner and runner-up teams will then be announced.
In 2016, this annual project engaged over 200 regional students from 12 South West high schools and youth organisations; with 22 short film entries submitted. The brief was to produce a 3-5 minute short film based on the theme The Window.
Students from Cape Naturaliste College took out last year’s prize, with their short film Wish I Was There.
