Entries extended for short film competition
  • Friday 05 June 2009

The SCRUFFFY short film competition has given up-and-coming young filmmakers a week’s reprieve by extending the deadline for the “X-treme Shorts” sports category until 10 June.

SCRUFFFY, the Sunshine Coast Regional Underground Film Festival For Youth, is an Australia-wide short film competition run as part of council’s YouthLinx program.

The “X-treme Shorts” category is accepting short films for surfing, skate boarding, wake boarding, BMX, motocross, sky diving or any other sport that pushes the boundaries.

The challenge is to create an original extreme sports short film that’s 30 to 120 seconds in length.

Entrants don’t have to have a track record in filmmaking, just a passion for all things extreme, and a camera or high quality mobile phone.

Budding filmmakers are encouraged to enter as many films as they like for their chance to win a share of over $2,000 in prizes on offer.

Entries will be screened at various SCRUFFFY events across the Coast, including the Homegrown Youth Festival at Alex Headland skate park on 20 June.
