ENTRIES FOR 2017 NOW CLOSED. See you at the festival.
The Setting Sun Short Film Festival is proud of its strong western suburbs identity and the incredibly talented filmmakers that live and work here. They’ve entered some great films over the years; documentaries that have showcased the west and its people as well as features from all genres. In just a few short years, we’ve become the largest short film festival in the west. And the best. This year, our fourth, promises to be our biggest. We’re looking for great films from all around Australia (and overseas). Films that tell a great story, that amuse, entertain, inform and wow. For our competition, we’re looking for films, no more than 12 minutes long, that were made from 1st December 2014 – 31st January 2017. We will play films in the festival that fall outside the competition criteria. Check with the office first. Filmmakers have the chance to win some great prizes and see their film screen in the glorious art deco Sun Theatre Yarraville. This year, winners will receive their awards on Opening Night and finalists announced on the website.
