Canberra Short Film Festival 2010

The 2010 Canberra Short Film Festival is the meeting place for the hottest short filmmakers. Recognized as one of Australia's premier film competitions, its entrants represent the boundless talent of our film industry. Now in its 15th year, the Festival has attracted a wide range of filmmakers from all over Australia. Among previous selections and winners have been Academy Award nominated films such as MIRACLE FISH (nominated in 2010). Many of our entrants are film professionals. It has also been a launching pad for many young and upcoming filmmakers who have gone on to careers in the film industry or who have subsequently gained places in film schools. The Festival itself is attended by established filmmakers and an enthusiastic film-going public who are passionate about film. Our panel of judges comprises industry professionals and we are supported by local and national sponsors who are keen to have their brands associated with this unique Australian event. Exhibiting filmmakers receive free tickets to the screening of their films at the Canberra Dendy Cinemas, the awards night screenings and presentations as well as an invitation to the glittering after-party to be held in one of Canberra’s most stylish venues. Because the Festival does not require our entrants’ films to fit into any particular theme, the Festival has an eclectic vibrancy that has huge audience appeal.
