Chance for filmmakers to showcase creative skills

January 3, 2018 by  

The art of film making will take centre stage when the Short Cuts Film Festival returns to Dandenong in 2018.

The event, which attracts entries from emerging to highly experienced talents in the field, provides a rare opportunity for all those within the local community to bring their stories to the big screen.

Entries are being urged in three categories which include the Open category for professional film makers; Community or Student category, encompassing those with no training in filmmaking including secondary and primary students; and finally, the Emerging category which is open to recent or current with no more than five years of experience.

Running for three years now, the festival’s film submissions will culminate on June 26, 2018 with entries being screened at the Dandenong Drum Theatre, curated by Richard Moore.

Printing services can help promote festivals small or large. This festival will include a second screening that will feature the latest inclusion to the festival programme, the Shorter Cuts Junior Film Festival, which targets secondary and primary school students.

The Junior Film Festival will be specially curated for screening in the G-rated film category.

Youhorn Chea, the Greater Dandenong Mayor Councillor, said over 700 entries were received last time.

“It is the ideal festival for exposing our local audience to international films and for identifying untapped local talent in the filmmaking industry.”
