Award Winning Tasmanian Short Film Screening Program
TASMANIAN FILMMAKERS RECOGNISED ON THE INTERNATIONAL STAGE
Award Winning Tasmanian Short Film Screening
Breeding in Captivity Fundraising Event
Tasmanian Short Film Screening is a retrospective of Internationally award-winning Tasmanian Short Films from the last 10 years. This is the first time an event of this type has been curated giving Tasmanian audiences the opportunity to finally see what the rest of the world has been raving about. Proceeds from the event will be used to finance the Tasmanian Produced feature length film Breeding in Captivity. Breeding in Captivity aims to be the first Tasmanian produced film in Australian cinemas since the 1987 Roger Scholes film Tale of Ruby Rose.
Featuring at the screening will be films by National and International award-winning Directors such as Rebecca Thompson (Slahed & Cupcake: A Lesbian Zombie Musical), Briony Kidd (Room at the Top of the Stairs), Adam Walker (Picollo & Sam), Breeding in Captivity Director Lucien Simon (Stripped Bare), Lucy Gouldthorpe (Kaleidoscope) etc. This is an opportunity for the community and the Industry to look aback on the last few years with pride and recognise the talent that Tasmania is nurturing.
Breeding in Captivity is a locally produced and self-financed feature length film that will be shot between September 1 and October 15. The film brings together some of the States finest filmmakers and actors. The Filmmaking Community of Tasmania is 100% behind this film and to celebrate the achievements of this growing industry and raise funds to take this feature into production Mast Films, the producers of Breeding in Captivity, in conjunction with Wide Angle Tasmania present Tasmanian Short Films.
