Make a short film! CHSS Short Film Festival coming in June

Final 2018 CHSS Short Film Festival

There is an opportunity this year to make a Short Film for our Film Festival Competition and win prizes. The Films will be shown at our Coffs Harbour Short Film Festival on the 29th and 30th of June, 2018.

This Short Film Festival competition is open to all people with a disability to enter a film, made by them, no more than 5 minutes long.

We are holding PROFFESSIONAL FILM MAKING WORKSHOPS for those who would like to learn the skills necessary to make a short film. Staff/carer/family member who are supporting participants to make their film will benefit by attending the workshops with our participants at no cost to them.
A LOCAL WELL KNOWN PROFESSIONAL FILM MAKER WILL RUN THE WORKSHOPS with the assistance of last years CHSS Film Festival Producer.

The Workshops will be held on Wednesdays 1pm to 4.30pm or Saturdays 2pm to 5.30pm. They will commence on Wednesday the 4th of April and run for 8 Weeks every Wednesday.

The same workshop will also run on Saturdays from the 7th of April for 8 weeks every Saturday. They will be held in the CHSS office at 14 Scarba Street, Coffs Harbour and cost $10 a workshop.

You will learn about Format, how to write a Script, do a Story board, learn about Camera angles, how to Film and edit from start to finish.

Places are limited so book now so you do not miss out on this great opportunity.

We are holding a Poster competition with a prize for the Film Festival and the winner's poster will be used for our advertising. The digital entry needs to be in HIGH RESOLUTION, JPEG OR PNG FORMAT, PORTRAIT ORIENTATION WITH THE ABILITYY TO PRINT AN A3 POSTER. This will need to be emailed to me before the 30th of April for judging.
