IF you are a Victorian high school student with a passion for filmmaking, jump on this opportunity to show your work to the public. Sol Ahn has details how you can enter the competition.


Put together by students, for students, Kalmania Student Film Festival is a short film festival for Victorian high school students. Students who enter into the festival are given the chance to win a Canon DSLR and some gift cards, which will be awareded to the winner on September 2, during Kalmania’s Festival Awards Night.

The event is held by Kal Multimedia Training, an educational institution in Melbourne mostly comprised of TAFE students.

High school students eager to exhibit their films in public will no doubt see Kalmania as a great opportunity to further their skills as budding filmmakers.

The rules for the competition are pretty simple. If you are Victorian high school students, you are eligible to enter. Even if you are an international student, you may enter the competition as long as you have some relation to a high school in the state of Victoria.

Films must be 5 minutes long and  produced in HD (high definition). While it is preferred that the submitted film be made in Victoria and spoken in English, if the final product was filmed outside the state/country, it may still be accepted.

Submissions close on August 19. Submission forms must be printed out from Kal Multimedia Training’s website and completed.

Complete forms, as well as your film, must then be sent to the following address: 2B Staley Street, Brunswick, VIC 3056.
