  • You can choose any genre, from drama to documentary, music video to TV commercial or movie trailer
  • Your entry must be no longer than 7 minutes, including the credits
  • The emphasis is on the story, rather than on technical elements but quality production is encouraged
  • You need to submit your entry via your teacher using the School Shorts Entry Form (PDF0.1MB)
  • Entries close 24 October
  • The judges will decide the finalists
  • The finalists will be screened at the School Shorts Festival screening on the evening of Monday 6 November at Hoyts Riccarton
  • Prizes will be awarded in a number of craft categories and there will be a Supreme Winner announced on the night
