Your short film can be about anything – let your imagination run wild! You might be into satire or animation, or maybe you want to shoot it at Spring Bay Mill. It’s entirely, it’s up to you, we don’t want to influence your storytelling, but just ask that there’s a reference to ‘Tasmania’ somewhere in your film – how you choose to do that is totally your call.
Judges: Marta Dusseldorp, Rocco Fazzari, Leta Keens, Leah Purcell
Shortlist films announced on Guardian Australia website on Monday, 10 May 2021
