The 2018 Central Goldfields Shire – Go Goldfields Short Flix Festival concludes with the Premier Gala event in Maryborough this weekend.
The red carpet event will be held at the Maryborough Paramount Theatre this Saturday 13 October at 7pm.
Tickets are booked out for the Saturday event with an additional screening to be held on Sunday 14 October at 3pm to accommodate demand. Entry to the Sunday screening is first in, best dressed.
The Short Flix Festival commenced in July this year, with a group of local young people aged between 13 and 20, signing up for the program.
Over the past four months, the group has worked closely with professional filmmakers Indimax Productions in all facets of filmmaking including scriptwriting, editing, camera operation, lighting and directing.
After developing film scripts, the young filmmakers spent two weekends in August filming before entering the post production phase, editing, adding colour, sound and credits.
As a result, nine short films will be screened for the first time this weekend.
More than 40 young people and a host of families, staff and businesses from across the Shire have been involved in the project as support cast, crew, makeup and design.
The Central Goldfields Shire – Go Goldfields Short Flix Festival is a joint initiative between Go Goldfields and the Federal Government’s Building Better Regions Fund.
