MyState BOFA – entries now open

Tasmania is preparing to host visiting film fanatics for its annual Breath of Fresh Air (BOFA) Film Festival in November.

MyState BOFA aims to give emerging and established filmmakers a storytelling platform and includes feature films, documentaries, debates and an exhibition. Filmmakers are also encouraged to enter one of two short film competitions – the Digital SLR Short Film Competition and the Fusion Film Competition.

The Digital SLR Short Film Competition is looking for short films shot on Digital SLR cameras that are under 12 minutes, based on either of the festival themes (‘New Horizons’ or ‘Food for Thought’) and fall under the genres of drama, documentary, humour or science-fiction. Award categories include the International Short film Award, Freshest Screenplay Award, Tasmanian Short Film Award for Freshest Short Film Produced in or by a Tasmanian, and the Audience Choice Award.

The Fusion Film Competition is run in conjunction with the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) and is looking for submissions of ‘fusion’ productions – moving images combined with stills from the same camera without narration or dialogue, in under five minutes (also adhering to the festival themes).

To submit feature films for consideration or to enter the Digital SLR Short Film Competition and the Fusion Film Competition, click here. Entries close at 5pm on Friday 30 September 2011.

The festival runs from 23-27 November, 2011 at Inveresk Railyards, Launceston, Tasmania, Australia. For more information. head here.
