Pasifika Film Fest is looking for 8 aspiring Pacific filmmakers to participate in our 48 Hour Film challenge as part of PFF 2018 in Sydney. The 48 Hour Film Challenge is brought to you in conjunction with Information and Cultural Exchange; and Australian Film Television and Radio School and includes a 1 Day work shop presented by established filmmakers of Pacific Heritage who will also mentor the teams through out the challenge process.

Selected filmmakers will come together to brainstorm scripts that centre around a theme that will have been sent to them 24 hours before. Participants will be required to pitch their ideas to experienced filmmakers.

Once script and concept is completed, groups will be given the opportunity to go off and create their project from pre to post-production, using equipment and editing suites made available by Information and Cultural Exchange.

Filmmakers will be given 48 hours to do this. Completed films will be screened as part of PFF 2018 in Sydney.

Electronic submissions must be made through Pasifika Film Fest’s, FilmFreeway page. See below for the rules and conditions surrounding submission to Pasifika Film Fest 2018.
