I’m A Sunshine Coast Filmmaker… What Opportunities Are There For Me?

There is virtually no Sunshine Coast Film Industry at the moment… Let’s work together and get it started now!

Awesome… How Do I Get Involved ?

We are prepared to share our contacts and experience including mentoring, networks and our qualifications as recognised writer, producer and director with Screen Australia. We provide this Film Festival as a platform to showcase your films. For the feature films that hit the mark in their genre we’ll get them into cinemas… It’s up to you to show some drive, resourcefulness and initiative and help yourself now…

I’m A Filmmaker living outside the Sunshine Coast… What Opportunities Are There For Me?

There are few areas in Australia that can honestly say that they have a strong local Film Industry at the moment… Let’s get connected and work together to change things!

I Think My Film May Be Able To Get A Deal With A Distributor. What Should I Do?

Awesome, we genuinely hope you achieve a distributor. You should only enter this Film Festival if the film is available to be screened  nationally in cinemas if chosen for Festival Committee Choice… Be prepared to wait to see what happens with your potential distributors. Keep communicating with them and tell them what’s happening with your film.  If things don’t work out with the distributor we’ll still be here to help you!
