Show Us Your Shorts Film Competition
Our short film competition, SHOW US YOUR SHORTS, will be held in conjunction with Warburton Film Festival 2023 in June.
Prizes this year include:
Golden Shorts Award (best overall film) - $1000
Student films as well as films from budding film-makers of any age have the opportunity to win major prizes.
These awards will be presented during the Warburton Film Festival (June 16-18) and we hope that film makers submitting films will be able to attend the presentation.
A film which wins an Award in one category will not be considered for another category. For example, if a particular film wins the Golden Shorts Award, then it will not be considered for any other award.
Judging will be finalised after the close of entries on May 14. Judges decisions are final.
Merit certificates will be issued to those short films selected to be screened prior to feature films during the festival weekend with the award winners presented during one of the sessions.
Acknowledgement of receipt of entry will be provided for all other film submissions.
Show Us Your Shorts has been a youth initiative to encourage young film makers and over the last 15 years it has been successful in achieving this.

The Show us your Shorts short film competition forms an important part of the annual Warburton Film Festival. Our aim is to showcase emerging filmmakers (both Australia wide and in the Yarra Ranges) and to encourage young people to pick up a camera and tell creative and original moving image stories.
Show Us Your Shorts is integrated into the Warburton Film Festival with selected short films screened prior to feature films during the weekend, and the winners announced at a session of the festival.
All entries must be submitted via the Filmfreeway website
