Roll cameras, it’s time to share your stories and filmmaking talents in The Best Australian Short-Film Competition!

PerthNow, in partnership with SAE Creative Media Institute, is inviting both emerging and established filmmakers nationwide to submit their original short films for the chance to share in a $75,500 prize pool, currently the richest in the country.

This exciting initiative is proudly supported by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, Seven Perth and Screenwest.

Our Director General, Lanie Chopping, said “This is such an exciting chance for filmmakers to have their creation recognised and seen by the industry and the Australian public!

“Our department is proud to be supporting this competition through presenting the West Australian Short Film Prize category. I know the calibre of talent we have locally and we are committed to the growth of our screen industry, which is being increasingly acknowledged nationally, attracting talent and productions to our state.

“I encourage all experienced and budding short filmmakers to grab this chance to wow audiences nationwide by telling their story through this exciting opportunity."
