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.’
