Filmmakers will have the chance to test their creative skills in a 48-hour competition.
The sixth instalment of the 48 Hour Film Project is open to anyone in NSW who wants to make a short film in 48 hours.
The competition starts on Friday, October 11 at the Newtown Hotel and entries must be submitted by 7.30pm Sunday, October 13.
Producer Tom Papas said the project brings out creativity and team-spirit among filmmakers from all ages and abilities.
‘‘The nature of this competition is all about doing, rather than talking,’’ Papas said.
‘‘It is also a vehicle that builds communities of local creative people, facilitates new connections, showcases skills, and celebrates what creativity and teamwork can accomplish in just one weekend.’’
Judging the films are a panel of industry experts.
Papas said the winning film would be chosen on artistic and technical merit, and keeping within the assignment.
‘‘The tight schedule truly serves to hone and refine their time management ability, teamwork and overall clarity of perception and understanding around fulfilling a brief,’’ he said.
The winning film will receive an $8000 cash prize and will compete against the world’s best filmmakers in the 48 Hour Film Project International Championships, in New Orleans, America.
