The Peninsula Film Festival (PFF) is held annually in Victoria.
Each year (March 6, 2021), up to 20 short listed films are screened and are judged live by a panel of celebrity judges and industry professionals - all competing for prizes. The Festival has garnered the support of some of the most respected and well known celebrities in the world including Sam Worthington and Russell Crowe to name a few. The Festival judging panel has also included top industry professionals such as Andrew Mason (Hopscotch and producer of the Matrix Dark City), Robert Connolly (Board Member Screen Australia and Australian Film Director Paper Planes, Balibo), John Molloy (Mushroom Pictures) and renowned Director Fred Schepisi. Filmmakers get an amazing opportunity to network with top industry professionals.
PFF attracts film-makers and filmgoers from all over the country and is supported by Industry bodies including Film Victoria.
Filmmakers of any level are encouraged to submit a short film up to eight minutes in length by the cut off date. Films MUST be no older than two years from date of the Festival.
If successful, your film may also be screened at a later stage at PFF activations and packages (please see FULL T&Cs on website).
