Koorie Youth Flick Fest 2021

Inspiring Aboriginal young people from Central Victoria to tell their stories through film!

Do you have a story to tell?

Entries are now open for Koorie Youth Flick Fest 2021!

For the first time at the Central Victorian Indigenous Film Festival, an exciting new Koorie youth short film competition is running in 2021 – called the Koorie Youth Flick Fest. The competition is open to all Aboriginal young people aged 25 and under living in Central Victoria.

There will be TWO winners, each awarded a cash prize of $500 each. Winners will also receive informal mentoring sessions from local filmmakers, Hebron Films and Vid. Co.

The local judges are looking for films that highlight story-telling, creativity, originality and local stories, and less on production quality or effects.

Films entries must: 

  • Be no longer than 3 minutes
  • Focus on the theme of “My Story”

This competition is open to anyone with a smartphone, tablet or camera and who has a story to tell – no fancy equipment or big budget is needed!

Submissions are due by midnight on Monday 26th April.

Winning films and a selection of entries will be screened at a special event during the Central Victorian Indigenous Film Festival held during Reconciliation Week, 27 May – 3 June. These celebrations will be open to everyone to attend.


To enter the competition, you need to:

1) Submit your completed application form by midnight on Monday 26th April

2) Submit your entry for judging by midnight on Monday 26th April
