Festival Overview

The Fleurieu Film Festival celebrates Australian filmmakers with the opportunity to showcase their short films and go in the running for over $20,000 worth of prizes.

The Festival is now running every 2 years, so the 2021 theme is ‘WILD'. Entries need to be submitted by 23/11/2020.

Submit short films 8 minutes & under of any genre as long as they address the #FFF21 theme. We will happily accept any short film genres including comedy, documentary, animations and music videos.

We want you to:
Make us laugh, cry, fall in love
Move, inform, or scare us....

Each film will be judged by a panel of film industry experts, who will select 10 finalist films to be screened at our 2021 Awards night (more details coming).


Share in over $20,000 in prizes including a cash prize of $5000 to the Best Film/Director!
