The Very Short Film Festival: Submissions due

April 7

The annual Very Short Film Festival has announced its call for submissions, welcoming films spanning all genres with a sole requirement: they must be within 5 minutes and incorporate the 2024 signature theme – ‘spark’.

The theme can be achieved through visuals, dialogue, metaphor, or any other creative interpretation.

In a commitment to inclusivity, the festival waives entry fees, ensuring that all storytellers, regardless of background, have an equal opportunity to share their stories. The festival is exclusive to filmmakers based in Australia.

Filmmakers can compete in two categories: Junior, tailored for the budding school-aged talents (aged 18 and younger), or Open (aged 19 and older).

Rewards for the top ten finalists include mentorship with industry greats and an all-inclusive trip to the festival premiere at the State Theatre in Hobart, Tasmania on May 31. In addition, six winners will receive cash prizes.

The jury boasts a star-studded panel including actor Essie Davis, accomplished director Justin Kurzel, multi-hyphenate Leah Purcell, actor and producer Marta Dusseldorp and cinematographer, Martin McGarth.
