One of the real highlights of the local film making calendar is Lights! Canberra! Action! competition.

On 27 February the list of bonus point items is released and then it’s hell for leather film making until entries close on 9 March.

But the theme for this year is known:

    2009 is the 100th anniversary of the staking out of the borders of the ACT and as we approach the Centenary of Canberra in 2013, we remember the selection, planning and building of our city with the theme of ‘Stake Out’

    Stake out your territory, Stake out a claim, Stake out your future, Stake out your position.

    Interpret the theme any way you like – the more creative the better!

The screening of the finalists will be on 13 March at the National Museum and hopefully we’ll be able to bring a number of them to you afterwards from YouTube/Vimeo.

UPDATED: Riot regular, and local theatrical legend, Ozhair, has kindly sent in his 2008 entry by way of example.

It won“Best Use of Festival Theme” and “Best Director”. Enjoy.

Already in pre-production on my effort for this year 🙂

For anyone interested, here’s my entry from last year. It picked up “Best Use of Festival Theme” and “Best Director”

Also, “Back To The Capital”, which had its own thread just recently, was another 2008 entry.
