2022 Youth Short Film Competition

Barossa Film Club Youth Film Contest 2022


Brief History

The Barossa Film Club was founded in 2003.

The Club meets and screens a film each month, February to November. The films are selected by individual club members and represent a variety of nationalities, genres and eras. Many of the films are not mainstream cinema releases.

The Club proudly presents the 2022 Youth Short Film Competition.

The Competition is designed to encourage young people with an interest in film making to foster an interest to produce a short film and for the Club to showcase local talent and for the entrants to have an opportunity to exhibit their work to the public and to win a prize.
