***DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 20th APRIL 2018*** Big Skies Film Festival is part of a Big Skies Festival 2018, a week long festival held at the iconic Jimbour House, just outside of Dalby in South East Queensland. The festival is an initiative run by the Western Downs Regional Council that celebrates the sights, tastes and experiences that the Western Downs has to offer. Big Skies Film Festival will be held as an open air cinema event under the stars, and the festival program runs over two nights of short films followed by a feature presentation. This short film competition has two categories: Any Device Competition The Any Device Competition is a micro short film competition, whereby filmmakers of all ages and experience will be encouraged to submit a short film under 5 minutes long . These films will be judged on their merit as a whole, and the quality of the recording device will not come into consideration as part of the selection process. These films must be filmed on location in the Western Downs in Dalby, Chinchilla, Jimbour, Miles, Tara, Warra, Bell, Jandowae or Wandoan. Films shot in 2018 for the purposes of this competition are strongly encouraged to apply. Please note that by “any device” this means the films can be shot on smartphone, tablet, DSLR, super 8, or any other video recording device. Open Competition (Australia) The Open Competition is for Australian short films up to 15 minutes that are set on location in Australia. Films that feature regional and rural settings are encouraged to apply.
