Are you aged 25 or under and want to win some great cash and prizes? The Future Shots Sustainability Film Challenge is now open. For the second year running, Future Shots invites all young Victorians to create a short film of under three minutes addressing the theme of sustainability.

You could film a drama, documentary, animation, music video, advertisement, a blend of these, or even a new genre altogether!  All you have to remember is to stick to the Future Shots theme of ‘sustainability’. You might even like to make a film with one of our major prize entry categories in mind: ‘water-smart cities‘, ‘waste-free Victoria‘ or ‘smart energy‘.  There are over $9000 in cash and prizes to win across 10 categories, so all young Victorians – whether you’re 5 or 25 – have a great chance of being in the running.

This year’s film entry deadline is November 15 so now’s the time to start conjuring, storyboarding and filming your best ideas.

Visit the Future Shots website for more information.

Course date: 15 August 2009
