Port Shorts Film Festival – Port Douglas – QLD – Australia

A breathtaking location, the platform to showcase Australia’s best short films and some of Australia’s most accomplished film exponents sharing their knowledge with emerging filmmakers – the Port Shorts Film Festival is a feast for the filmmaking senses.

The 2016 Port Shorts Film Festival was staged under the stars in nature’s playground, Port Douglas in Far North Queensland where the majestic Daintree Rainforest meets the spectacular Great Barrier Reef, on October 28-29.

With a prize pool worth more than $15,000 up for grabs, the Port Shorts Film Festival shines the spotlight on the imagination of Australia’s most creative minds, with a support network geared to stimulate the next generation of filmmakers.

Acclaimed Australian actor Stephen Curry, Wolf Creek and Rogue Executive Producer Matt Hearn and Australian Film Industry Awards nominated screenwriter Kier Shorey (Blurred) were with emerging filmmakers every step of the journey as official ambassadors, mentors and judges of the Port Shorts Film Festival.

Port Shorts organisers also conducted workshops for youth and adult filmmakers of all experience, providing them with tools to produce quality short films, documentaries and music videos in the future.

Our mission is to help Australia’s best emerging filmmakers achieve their potential and celebrate their individuality.
