Over the years, CinefestOZ has been proud to present a wide variety of Australian short films to our audiences. 2019 will see the return of the short film program, with Side Bar events across the South West region screening the best short films on offer.
CinefestOZ audiences will be shown the final selection of West Australian, Australian and French short films at the crowd-pleasing Side Bars, held during the festival at lively locales in Busselton, Bunbury, Dunsborough, Augusta, Margaret River and Cowaramup. The short film screenings showcase WA and Australia’s filmmaking talent along interactive discussions with filmmakers.
CinefestOZ accepts entries for two categories;
The Filmmakers of the Future category is open to emerging Western Australian filmmakers aged 18 to 25. CinefestOZ is proud to support young filmmakers as they work towards a career in filmmaking.
Australian Open category is open to filmmakers across the country, for all short films under 40 minutes in length.
Indigenous filmmakers are encouraged to enter both categories. Please get in touch if you’re interested in submitting any VR and AR content into either category.
Submissions are open from 1st of February and close on 3rd June 2019.
