Premiere Screening Event

Join us at Spring Bay Mill for a viewing of the shortlisted films and to announce the winners for the very first, Very Short Film Festival. Meet the filmmakers, enjoy canapés and a free welcome drink. Very Short Film Festival is a national festival open to anyone interest in creating a short 2–5 minute film. Cash prizes and awards are offered and the project is presented by Artology, Spring Bay Mill and Guardian Australia with winners announced on Friday 21 May 2021 at Spring Bay Mill. Entries open to the Very Short Film Festival website: veryshortfilmfestival.com.au Deadline for submissions: Friday, 23 April 2021 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. 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.
