Slumberjack Film festival returns for 2022!
Our first 3 years have been a great success, bringing the very best in independent film to our cinema loving audience. But due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to not host a festival in 2021 and instead, plan for 2022!
Slumberjack Film Festival was established with one goal. To help elevate independent filmmaking. It is our belief that the indie filmmaker is the heart of our industry and our aim is to give individuals and organisations a platform to showcase their work.
Indie filmmakers are the future and deserve to be celebrated!
We want people to see that you don’t need a big budget or the backing of a major production company to create wonderful cinema. All you need is an idea and the drive to see it through.
Slumberjack Film Festival is open to all genres of both shorts and Features. We also accept web series, music videos and trailers.
Best Short ( under 60 mins )
Best Super Short ( 5 mins and under )
Best Web series
Best Music Video
