ReelOzInd! Short Film Competition and Festival

www.reelozind.com

The ReelOzInd! Short Film Competition and Festival seeks to raise awareness and improve understanding between the peoples of both countries. It offers a platform for Australians and Indonesians to share their own stories by way of this most compelling and creative medium, short film.

ReelOzInd! aimed to enhance the already significant range of cultural exchange programs, events and activities that bring Indonesians and Australians together.

Short film is increasingly popular and accessible for both the creation of stories and for viewing them. Internet and mobile technology means literally anyone with a mobile phone or tablet can be a filmmaker and view film anytime and anywhere.
ReelOzInd! engaged people from a wide range of backgrounds – from students to more established filmmakers – in a competition that showcases their talents before audiences in Australia and Indonesia and also to a worldwide online audience.

This festival is unique. There is no other festival that brings Australian and Indonesian filmmakers together to share their work and stories in the same forum.
