CINEFESTOZ Last call for submissions

The deadline is approaching for submissions for the CinefestOZ Film Festival 2019. Filmmakers have until Monday, June 3 to submit their films for official selection at the CinefestOZ Film Festival which will take place from August 28 until September 1 in Margaret River and the South West.

Official selection categories for Australian films and Australian co-productions are: film prize ($100,000 award), general submissions for narrative and documentary feature length films, short films, and virtual reality.

At $100,000, the CinefestOZ Film Prize is the richest award bestowed on the producer of new Australian film. It is an incentive to Australia’s film community. Previous winners include Paper Planes, Ali’s Wedding and Jirga.

Celebratory Western Australian premiere screenings of films vying for the Film Prize, followed by In Conversation events at exceptional South West locations, are festival highlights, with the winner announced at a gala evening on August 31. Short films are screened at CinefestOZ as a part of its popular Side Bar program held in wineries, restaurants and bars throughout the South West.

In 2018, CinefestOZ presented more than 200 film and film related events at cinemas, wineries, beachside cafes, cosy small bars, restaurants, theatres, and community buildings – even a cave – making it a truly diverse and very Australian destination film festival.

Don’t miss out, submit your application and film before Monday, June 3. CinefestOZ Film Festival 2019 takes place from August 28 until September 1 in Margaret River and the South West.
