Get creative in a short 2–5 minute film for your chance to win from a range of cash prizes. Presented by Artology, Spring Bay Mill and Guardian AustraliaVery Short Film Festival is a brand new national film festival with winners announced on Friday 21 May 2021 at Spring Bay Mill.

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 on Tasmania’s East Coast. Or you can do something else 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.
