Children have incredibly creative minds, and many primary schools throughout Melbourne enter. This provides the kids a unique experience, and a fantastic opportunity to show their hard work.


Secondary School Category

With a world becoming increasingly visual with the growth of YouTube and other digital mediums, but there are still very few ways for a young film maker to be shown in a cinema. We believe that supporting these and all aspiring film-makers is crucial for the ever changing visual arts mediums. 


Open Category

Each year, film makers from around Australia and even internationally enter their films to showcase their talent. 

With $10,000 in prizes, the Sunshine Film Festival is one of the best opportunities for lesser known filmmakers to reach an audience
