Following the remarkable triumph of this year’s festival, attributed to the exceptional quality of the submitted films, the Australian Oz Indie Film Festival is poised to once again honor the pinnacle of International and Australian independent filmmaking. In an era where movies are increasingly dictated by market research, demographics, and commercial trends like comic books and computer games, the imperative to unearth and nurture bold, independent, and visionary filmmakers has never been more pronounced.

Your film will be evaluated based on a single criterion: the excellence of your craft. Feel empowered to express your perspectives and ideologies, as long as they are integral to the submitted work. Within the bounds of legal decency, we will not censor your artistic expression.

All victors are recognized, praised, and commemorated on our website, receiving certificates along with exclusive laurels and tailored promotion. Additionally, each submission can opt for additional categories, enhancing the opportunity to achieve multiple awards.

Our categories include Australian Independent Feature Films, Australian Short Films, International independent Films, Documentaries, Indigenous Work, Animated Features, Animated Shorts, Smart Phone Work, Student Work, TV Pilot and Music Videos.
