Your chance to be a reality TV Star

We are movers and shakers at the Sunshine Short Film Festival. Not only do we have a spine tingling film festival for your enjoyment this Friday night but we are also going to provide you with an opportunity to become a reality TV Star!

The People’s View is going to be an Australian version of the British hit series Gogglebox which is a show about people watching TV at home and their reactions to it.

Shine Production, the company behind the Australian production, is going to be casting in Sunshine on Friday 31st October at the Night Market on Hampshire Road from 4pm to 7pm as part of the lead up to the Festival Screening!

All you need to do is front up and hang around and they will find you. What they are looking for are people who love watching TV and who are interesting, opinionated and amusing. They are looking for families, couples, friends or housemates. They are looking for you.

So come on down to the Night Market, come on down to the Screening, and Come on Down to make yourself a star.

The 2014 Sunshine Short Film Festival

halloweenlipsThe Sunshine Short Film Festival is back again for 2014.

Enter a short film (5 minutes max) which includes a reference to Sunshine and Halloween! Screenings will occur on Friday the 31st of  October at the Village Cinemas Sunshine. Entries are now open and $5,000 worth of prizes are up for grabs!

Friday the 31st of October is Halloween. Have fun exploring a Halloween theme! Vampires, zombies & pumpkins, oh my!! This year's theme presents a fantastic opportunity to work in with the Sunshine theme. The forces of darkness and light battling it out etc!

A couple of important changes to previous years.
1.    Categories: There are only two categories for films this year: A Schools Category and the Open Category.
The Schools will be divided into 3 sections: Primary Schools, Secondary Schools and Tertiary. The films in the schools category have to have major creative input from the students. The Open Category will include everybody else.
2.    Judging: The main prizes will be awarded on the basis of a popular vote, however, we have a new Judge’s award for the best film based on professional film making practice. We have a panel of very experienced professional filmmakers as judges. Use the opportunity to impress them.
