About the Sunshine Short Film Festival
We are the scrubby little festival that could! In our 10th year we are growing from a community based, local festival to one now with national and international recognition. Our focus is still and will always be on compelling storytelling through a visual medium. We celebrate the work of professional, accomplished filmmakers just as much as we do those who just want to have a go and have something to say to the world. We truly believe in diversity and its representation on screen. We want to blow apart the traditional assumptions of good/bad, art/not art, community/industry. We recognise traditional accomplishment as much as we do sheer gumption, the desire to say something to world, and just the sheer joy of a collective creative process.
