Capricorn Film Festival’s Submissions Open

It must be that time of year for Central Queensland’s 4th annual Capricorn Film Festival announces entries open for its biggest event yet.

After the triumph of last year’s record breaking submissions including 300 short films made for the CAPS Short Film Festivals three categories, Festival Director Luke Graham announces Capricorn Film Festival opens submissions for year four of its highly successful destination event.

“After a fantastic 2017 and a strong showing from all levels of filmmakers both regionally and greater Australian, the festival team can’t wait to see what our Australian and international filmmakers have for us this year.” Luke Graham Festival Founder and Director

This year’s event will include up to eight feature films and documentaries played over the course of the three day event with the highly popular CAPS Short Film Festival concluding festivities on the film day. Short films from Central Queensland will compete to win two categories, CAPS Open and CAPS Junior, while CAPS World will showcase the best of Australian and international short film entries. Films will be reviewed by a jury of film and entertainment professionals with the winners sharing in a $5000 prize pool and each receiving trophies.

 

“The event is truly a filmmaker first festival. The Capricorn film festival was established to encourage production, not just exhibition and our intention is to draw you to the region and support the grow of filmmaking in Central Queensland” Luke Graham

The festival is open to any level of filmmaker, from amateur to professional and is supported by some of Australia’s premiere filmmakers and industry companies.

To round out the Capricorn Film Festival other activities will include a virtual reality cinema, masterclasses, panel discussions and filmmaker networking events.

Entries are open till October 14th with official selections notified by October 25th, just one month before the destination festival event, with submissions accepted via online only through capricornfilmfestival.com
