We invited budding filmmakers aged 8-19 years to create a short film using their mobile device and enter to win prizes.

There are two categories:

Category 1: Ages 8-12 years
Category 2: Ages 13-19 years.

The best entries will be screened via the Creative Wollongong Facebook page and at a real live Film Festival hosted by the Wollongong City Council’s cultural development team at a date to be confirmed in the future.

Entries have now closed.

Thank you to everyone who entered our competition, we had so many amazing entries! Our judges, including special guest, actor Jake Ryan, are viewing all the films and we will be announcing winners on Thursday 20 August 2020 on our Creative Wollongong Facebook page.
