The Split Second Film Competition is back for a fourth year, offering young filmmakers the chance to have their short films shown in cinemas across the state.

The competition is open to 18-25-year-olds, who will pitch a 45-second film concept about road safety for the chance to win $70,000 in production funding, as well as $5000 in prize money.  Pitches in 2021 should address the road safety issues of low-level speeding or drink driving, which remain significant causes of injuries and deaths on our roads. Entries for pitches are open until 15 August.
