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 our 2022 signature theme ‘SPRING’ somewhere in your film – how you choose to do that is totally your call.
