The following media release has come into us, apparently they’re well sorted for entries in general but would really like to get more Canberra made material in:
- CANBERRA SHORT FILM FESTIVAL

The Canberra Short Film Festival, with new festival manager SilverSun Pictures, is on again this year, with all screenings now at Dendy cinemas, from Thursday 16th October to Saturday 18th October, with tickets now available for purchase from Dendy.
Entries from all over Australia, and some from as far as Poland, have been pouring in since the festival competition opened for entries two weeks ago, including the recently much-talked about ‘White Noise’, a drama about life as a deaf person.
The prize categories (and prize sponsors) these years are;

Canberra (Dendy Cinemas Canberra Centre) – $1500
National Youth (SilverSun Pictures) – $1000

Music Video (BMA Magazine) – $1000
Entries close Tuesday 30th September 2008, and all filmmakers are encouraged to enter.
Workshops and seminars are also being run during the 4-day event, on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th October.
The current confirmed guests hosting the workshops and seminars are;
Karel Segers, script editor
Writers Workshop, “The Heroes Journey”

With more on the way, including ‘3D animation’, ‘Storytelling & filmic style in Videogames’, ‘Visual FX’, and ‘Digital HD cameras vs Film – which is better?’
