15/15 Film Festival

Posted: October 12, 2010 in Out & About

What is the 15/15 Film Festival?

It’s a chance for filmmakers to create a short film, enter it in the competition and have it aired on the big screen. The name gives it all away – make a film up to 15 minutes in length over a 15 hour period.

What’s so great about it?

  • Anyone can enter.
  • There’s no cost for entry.
  • All films are screened.
  • It’s a worldwide event.

What do you have to do for it?

  • Look out for the filming date on the website.
  • Register as a filmmaker.
  • Fill out the forms giving your details and those of your cast and crew.
  • On the morning of the filming day receive your email that will give you the object and quote that MUST be included in the film (to prove you made it on the day and not beforehand)
  • Submit your film that night.
  • Wait to see when and where your film will be screened.

Why do it?

  • It makes you actually get off your bum and have a go on a set date.
  • You learn something new about filmmaking every time you do it.
  • There are workshops to get you started.
  • It’s the cheapest and easiest way to see your film get a public screening.
  • It’s fun.

Films from Frankston-based filmmakers and award winners will be screened at Frankston ACMI Cinemas. Interested? See 15.15 Festival 2010 more details.

NB. The film put together by myself, Tiffany Miller-Scott and Kyah Scott-O’Halloran this year is titled, ‘Random Beauty.’

    Wow – that sounds fantastic. I might go to the screening – will you be going? So, does that mean you have to live in Frankston to be part of the 15/15 festival?

      Yeah, I’m going -def let me know if you decide to go too! You can live anywhere to be part of the 15/15 festival – it’s the screenings of the film that are shown in the area most local to you! Some of the award winners are shown at each screening no matter where they’re from. It’s pretty cool to see some of the winning/shortlisted films.
