The Indian Film Festival of Melbourne returns for its sixth year, seeking fresh filmmaking talent from Australia and India.

The theme of this year’s competition is EQUALITY. The creative challenge is to make a short film of 10 minutes or less about what equality means to you.

We are looking forward to receiving a wide array of films covering different interpretations and angles on equality—from race, religion and gender to age, sexuality and disability.

We are proud to partner with Western Union who is offering $1000 for the most effective branding of their product in the film.

The winning film will screen before every major film at the festival, so if you’ve always wanted to get your work on the big screen, this is a great opportunity to get your talent noticed by industry insiders, filmmakers, actors, directors and other special guests. You just never know where it could take you.

Our past winners have scored themselves working opportunities at mega film studios, and this competition was their lucky break. And if that’s not enough, the Australian winner will also win a trip to India!

No entrance fee, no submission cost, nothing to lose, and so much to gain. So get creative and start filming!
