We are holding fantastic filmmaking Masterclasses for 15-18 year olds planning to enter this year’s Cinesnaps Short Film Competition. If you are an aspiring filmmaker, keen YouTuber, or passionate Vlogger, get on board!

(And if you are a media teacher, this will be super handy for you as well – upskilling, improving entries . . . )

Busselton Tuesday, 12 March

Bunbury, Wednesday, 13 March

Why?

Because entering your film could result in you being one of seven finalists who have their film premiere at a special red carpet event as part of CinefestOZ in August. This event is BIG and attended by some of the best-know names in Australian filmmaking and acting.

Because the experienced and awesome filmmaker Jodie Bell will be leading the charge, along with cameraman Vincent Carter. You will learn heaps, have some fun and get some great direction.

And because you only have until 28 June to enter the Short Film comp’ and this will really help you on you way.

Time is ticking . . . this year’s theme is The Watch . . .

Interested?

Students, teachers, anyone 15-18 years old and living in the South West, take a look at the information here, or get in touch with Gabrielle [email protected]
