Sparrowland Short Film Festival is dedicated to showcasing independent films and providing film makers with a platform from which to have their voices heard….OUT LOUD.
There’s really only one catch….your film has to have heart. We are looking for real and raw stories that will challenge our view of humanity. These can be any genre you like – but please be unapologetic in your exploration of what encapsulates the human spirit.
We invite you to send in your latest project, to be adjudicated by some of Brisbane’s influential film making professionals. If officially selected, you will be screened at our live event, alongside other inspirational filmmakers….this is set to be a massive celebration of all things indie!
We are so looking forward to receiving your submissions and sharing your stories, in this celebration of love for indie films and for the human spirit.

Best Australian Short Film
Best International Short Film
Best Documentary Short
Best Student Film
Best Pilot of web series or TV series
