Once a week (unless advised otherwise), Deckchair Cinema offers its audience an NT short prior to the feature. It's a great opportunity for local filmmakers to see their work on a big screen and share it with a real audience!

If your film is selected to be screened, you'll be invited to attend the screening (including the feature) with a guest, and we'll promote your film through our own channels.

You will receive a flat fee of $150.00 AUD for up to 4 screenings of your film.

Deckchair Cinema attracts over 45,000 visitors every year, tourists as locals. A sold-out screening holds 420 people, looking at nothing else but your work on the big screen!

Feel free to add info in the credits to invite the audience to learn more, donate, subscribe, etc.

The short films screened prior to features at Deckchair must not exceed 15 minutes duration.

The Programming committee will decide on the screening dates of the shorts, which should be paired with an appropriate feature (similar rating, theme, etc).

By submitting your film to Deckchair Cinema NT Shorts, you are giving permission to the Darwin Film Society to screen your film at the Deckchair Cinema season 2020, any night of the season, and up to 4 times.

You are also granting Deckchair Cinema the right to use production stills and other promotion material (e.g. to advertise for the screenings).
