Entries are now officially open for the Dungog Festival’s 2015 short film competition. After a highly successful inaugural competition last year, the contest returns to the Dungog Festival program in 2015 with six categories on offer, including:

• Still Waters Run Deep – (submissions must contain visual references to water to be eligible)
• Suburban Mayhem
• Sugar Rush (content must be made especially for children)
• The Daily Grind
• Thriller Night
• Too Many Cooks.

A judging panel of four industry professionals will review each film and create a short list of final films that will screen as part of the Dungog Festival’s film program in October.

Submissions close 31 August and finalists will be notified in September, with the winner set to walk away with $1,000 in cash.

“Last year’s entries displayed exceptional talent and we are very excited to see what’s out there this year,” said Dungog Festival Artistic Director, Veronica Bolzon.
