Short Films

Submissions are now open!

Submissions are now open for entry into the CinefestOZ Short Film Category. Over the years, CinefestOZ has been proud to present a wide variety of Australian short films to our audiences. 2017 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 at lively locales in Busselton, Bunbury, Dunsborough, Augusta and Margaret River during the festival. The short film screenings showcase WA and Australia’s filmmaking talent along interactive discussions with filmmakers.

CinefestOZ will be accepting entries for two categories;

The Filmmakers of the Future category is open to West 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 between 1 and 15 minutes.

Submissions are open from 20 February and will close 2 June 2017.
