The Friday Night Gala Evening is primarily about screening the finalists and announcing the winners. This is our 5th year and it'll be bigger and grander than ever.

On the night we'll be awarding the following prizes; Best Student Film'; Best Independent/Production House Film and Directors' Choice Award.

The JVC Prize is a JVC GY-HM100E HD Camcorder worth over $6,000 and the Panavision prize includes camera and equipment hire for a couple of days and a great insurance deal for all you budding film makers.


On the night we'll see plenty of great shorts and get to meet one of the judges and the illustrious Lisa Cahill, the creator of our great trophies for this year.

Food and drink will be available, along with your chance to have a good chat to our guests and judges.

So, come along and have a great night out with all your friends.
