Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Do you think you've got the creative touch? Have you got a story you really want to tell on film?

Are you a deaf/hard of hearing teenager and perhaps the next Sofia Coppola, Steven Spielberg or James Cameron in waiting??

Are you interested in film-making? Have you always wanted to be the one to say "And....ACTION!...?

Even if you can't make it into our film-making workshop, you can still enter our competition!

You are welcome to submit a short 5 minute film about your 'Experiences as a deaf or hard of hearing teenager'

If your film is shortlisted for one of the below categories, it will be screened at the Hear For You Film Festival on Thursday 24th August at Golden Age Cinema!

P.S. Your ticket includes entry for yourself and one guest into the Film Festival Premiere on Thursday 24th August

Film categories:

  • Best Director

  • Best Story

  • Best Film

Film criteria for submission:

  • Max 5 minutes in length

  • You must create an Vimeo account and upload your film there (you can make it a private setting so that only us judges can see it)

  • The story must be related to your experiences as a deaf teenager

  • If you have any sound/dialogue, it must be clear enough so our captioners can transcrible and place the correct subtitles on it without errors. Alternatively you can submit the script with your submission.

No films will be accepted past the submission deadline of Friday 21st July 11:59PM (Sydney time).

All decisions regarding shortlisting and category winners are final.
