Deadline approaching for entries to Student Film Festival 2020 – plus some bonus inspiration from the students at MITS

There are less than two weeks to go until the entry deadline for our Student Film Festival, so we’ve decided to provide some last- minute inspiration from the students at the Melbourne Indigenous Transition School.


Our Journey to Melbourne Indigenous Transition School won the People’s Choice Award in the Years 7-10 Category at our 2019 Student Film Festival, which you can watch above.


Entries for this year’s festival close on Friday 28 August.


Film submissions are invited from all year levels and can be created either by individual film makers or as collaborative class projects.


There’s also a Theme 2020 category, where students create a film of their chosen content referencing our theme – a red box.


Selected films screened as part of a gala event in October, with prizes for creative and technical expertise, as well as a People’s Choice award on the night.


The competition is open to all students in all schools, and participants can submit as many films as they like. The year categories are:


  • Early Years: Prep-Year 2
  • Junior: Years 3-6
  • Middle: Years 7-9
  • Senior: Years 10-12
