A very warm welcome to Sparrowland Productions' inaugural film festival!

Sparrowland Short Film Festival is dedicated to showcasing independent films and providing film makers with a platform from which to have their voices heard….OUT LOUD.

There's really only one catch....your film has to have heart. We are looking for real and raw stories which are told from the heart. These can be any genre you like - but please be unapologetic in your exploration of what encapsulates the human spirit.

We invite you to send in your latest project, to be adjudicated by some of Brisbane's inspirational film making professionals. Winners will earn their place at our live screening and pick themselves up a nifty new trophy! Semi-finalists will be able to proudly sport one of our fancy laurels.

Looking forward to receiving your submissions and sharing your stories, in this celebration of love for indie films and for the human spirit.
