Heart of Gold Short Film Festival is held on the first weekend in October

Heart of Gold Short Film Festival has been running for 12 years and is all about making films that are transformative – films that are uplifting, thought-provoking and films that can influence people in a positive way.

The Heart of Gold Young Filmmakers Competition gives high school students around Australia an opportunity to tell their stories, develop their filmmaking and life skills, build confidence and showcase their work in a supportive environment.

Three awards are on offer – the Regional and National Young Filmmaker awards and People’s Choice. Films selected as finalists will be shared on Heart of Gold Short Film Festival’s social media, giving an opportunity for Young Filmmakers to reach a global audience and be voted for in the People’s Choice award.

Finalists will be screened on Sunday October 6 as part of the Heart of Gold Short Film Festival in Gympie and young filmmakers will have the opportunity to attend the festival, masterclasses, and awards ceremony as guests. https://heartofgold.com.au/young-filmmakers-competition
