Submissions are OPEN for the 11th CinefestOZ Film Festival and Australia’s Greatest Film Prize

The $100,000 Film Prize will be awarded to an Australian feature film for excellence in filmmaking, during the CinefestOZ Film Festival, held 22-26 August 2018 in the Margaret River region of Western Australia.

Shortlisted films vying for the Film Prize will premiere in Western Australia at CinefestOZ Film Festival.

Submissions for official selection for the 2018 festival are also invited. Official selection categories for Australian films and Australian co-productions are:

  • Film Prize
  • General submissions for narrative and documentary feature length films
  • Short films

Submissions for the Festival’s Short Film are also open. The program offers an exciting opportunity for Australian filmmakers to showcase their short form productions and offer further diversity to the festival audience.

The final selection of Western Australian, Australian and French Short films will be screened at CinefestOZ as a part of its popular Side Bar program. Side Bar screenings showcase filmmaking talent through events with interactive filmmaker Q&As in Busselton, Dunsborough, Bunbury Margaret River and Augusta.

CinefestOZ is supported by the State Government through Tourism WA’s Regional Events Program. Rio Tinto is also a proud Premium Partner. The festival acknowledges its strong partnership with Screenwest, Lotterywest and Screen Australia.
