First Nation Stories Film Competition

With $10,000 in prizes proudly provided by yourtown, filmmakers from around Australia and of all ages and heritage are invited to tell First Nation stories through the medium of short film. The competition is looking for stories of First Nation people with unique ideas, people who have gone outside the ordinary, people who have followed their passions and taken a risk, people who have worked together to create something extraordinary, and people who have fought to protect what makes them, their culture and their country special. Films can be submitted in the Under 17 age category or the 17 Plus age category with no upper age limit.
Entries close 20 March; learn more and submit.
