Shortcuts Film Festival is back!
Now in it’s tenth year Shortcuts Film Festival is a short film festival produced by Powerhouse Youth Theatre for the young people of Western Sydney.
This festival creates a platform for young filmmakers to showcase their talents and provides significant pathways to the professional industry.
Entries are now open to all filmmakers under the age of 25 from Western Sydney
2012 winner Vinh Nguyen considers Shortcuts the launching pad of his film making career…
”It is a platform where I can freely express my creativity without limits, and as a past winner, I’m proud to be a part of the pool of talent.”
Shortcuts was created in 2003 by Powerhouse Youth Theatre (PYT), in response to the emerging voice in film within the area. And each year that interest in filmmaking has continued to grow, with festival numbers increasing in participation and audience.
Since its inception, it has
- Attracted over 390 young filmmakers
- Screened 84 new Australian shorts
- Amassed an audience of 670 young people from western and metro Sydney
- Provided opportunities for young people from western Sydney to tell their stories and access industry networks to further their careers
- Provided a high quality public platform for young film makers to showcase their films and receive feedback from industry professionals
- Increased opportunities for young people in western Sydney to participate in the arts
We have contacted you because we think you can help spread the word on Shortcuts, and within your organisation you may have young film makers who would benefit from entering.
There are thousands of dollars worth of prizes to be won and a professional film career to begin. If you would like someone from PYT to come and speak at your organization give us a call – we would love to!
Otherwise head to www.pyt.com.au for all details of entry or ring us at PYT on “(02) 9724 6077”: .
