My Story My Content Short Film Competition is an opportunity for Australian student filmmakers to tell a story about themselves and their creativity. It’s an initiative of the IP Awareness Foundation and Australian Teachers of Media (ATOM).
Entrants must submit their short film (no longer than 60 seconds) by 5pm AEST on Friday 8 August 2014.
The theme for this year’s competition is “Movies Make a Difference”. We know that movies have a great impact on people’s lives, and we are also aware of the impact that piracy has on the movie industry. We invite student filmmakers to tell us why movies make a difference to them, and to include a reference to film piracy. Also, the line: “Movies… Make a Difference”, or an adaptation of it, must appear in the film in some way, for example, as a spoken line, caption, or in the background.
Sally Caplan, Head of Production at Screen Australia, has agreed to judge the Tertiary category of the competition. Sally is responsible for determining Screen Australia’s development and production slate of features, TV dramas and documentaries.
There are also prizes to be won, including $1000 cash, DVDs, Blu-ray Packs, movie tickets and more.
