2023 Winning team for Years 7-9 from Albany, with Jury panel and Ron Mutambiranwa from Rio Tinto


The Cinesnaps Albany Program 2023 was a great success! 

Looking back to April 2023…What a wonderful CinefestOZ Albany we enjoyed, with hundreds of students from schools in Albany and the wider Great Southern region. Thank you to all who participated – we hope you enjoyed the experience from film guests visiting your school as well as engaging with great Australian films with Q&As afterwards.  

Following CinefestOZ Albany, the south west festival hosted several Albany students as they had been selected as finalists in the Cinesnaps Short Film Competition. Results are now in and Albany students took out the winner and runner ups for the years 7-9 category – tremendous work!!
