The Christchurch Short Film Festival & Community Screening
The inaugural Canterbury Shorts: A Film Festival is a boutique short film festival that will be a creative expression of optimism, helping to shift the local conversation from earthquakes and tension to a celebration of Christchurch and Canterbury. It will be a non-competition/non-judged film festival and community screening.
The festival will showcase a curated collection of short films set in Canterbury that are spirited, uplifting, unexpected and engaging. Emerging and established filmmakers will be showcased and given the opportunity to screen their work side-by-side. The festival will be free to the public. Koha donations will be paid forward to the local filmmaking community.
The festival will be held for one evening at an outdoor cinema in Christchurch in early April 2016, with a second evening screening in October 2016. Submissions and enquiries can be made directly to Brindi at: AgapeStudiosNZ@gmail.com until 22 February 2016. Submission is free.
The Festival will include a Q & A session with filmmakers, special events and more.
