Locals 2024 Screening

5:00PM SATURDAY 15 JUNE

Showcasing regional filmmakers’ work, our LOCALS program is becoming a beloved Festival fixture. It invites filmmakers of all experience levels to submit a non-fiction work of up to six minutes’ duration and of any style or genre; and to hone their films in workshops with local filmmakers Tony Jackson, Leonie VanEyk, Bergen O’Brien and Kyla Brettle, and special guests Sam Dinning and Rob Buttery.

This year’s result: a fresh and wonderful mix that includes films about art, compost, and the making of Jurassic Park Castlemaine and so much more. All screening filmmakers are in the running for one of two Black Magic Design DaVinci Resolve Studios, worth $500 each.
