Your chance to become a filmmaker

Bright, Victoria – February 10 to 12, 2017

Filming your holiday adventure has never been easier. The difficult part of film making is editing the footage into a coherent and entertaining film. For many aspiring filmmakers when the adventure is over the footage just languishes on a computer. Never edited. Never viewed.

The Adventure Travel Film Festival is offering would be filmmakers the opportunity to have their footage professionally created into a sub 10-minute film.

Supported by Keen Footwear, the festival is asking future adventure travel filmmakers to submit a simple one-page synopsis of their story. A short list of entrants will then be asked to submit up to a maximum of five hours of footage. A winner will be selected and the footage will be professionally edited and produced by Killafish Productions (www.killafish.com.au). The finished film will be shown at the 2017 Adventure Travel Film Festival held in Bright in February. The short listed entrants will also receive a Smartphone film making kit.

Held in the picturesque Victorian township of Bright, in the heart of Australia’s Alpine region, the Adventure Travel Film Festival is not just a celebration of the world’s greatest adventure travel films from the 1930s to the present day.
