Our annual Cinesnaps Short Film Competition encourages young, aspiring South West filmmakers, Youtubers and vloggers to create and showcase original short films of 3-5 minutes.
Now open to two age categories, all secondary students in the South West and Albany regions are invited to enter! Separate entry packs for Years 7-9 and Years 10-12 will be available before launch date of 1 December. Entry is free.
The competition aims to showcase the talents of this next generation of filmmakers, submissions are shortlisted to screen at a glamorous, youth-focused, Grand Finale event during CinefestOZ Festival week. Finalists receive feedback from a panel of high-profile, Australian film industry professionals before the winner and runner-up teams are announced.
In August 2020, the general public, students and their families, as well as teaching professionals and film guests attended the Grand Finale youth event. Patrons enjoyed screenings of the finalist short films, and shared in the excitement.
Each film received feedback from the esteemed Cinesnaps Jury Panel, chaired by Cinesnaps Patron Myles Pollard. Other 2020 jury members were producer Kate Separovich, and casting director Annie Murtagh-Monks. Completing the event was the announcement of the winning and runner-up teams. Huge congratulations to all students involved!
