RE­GIONAL film­mak­ers have a lit­tle bit longer to shoot and edit their sub­mis­sions for this year’s an­nual Capri­corn Film Fes­ti­val.

Sub­mis­sions have been ex­tended un­til Oc­to­ber 23 for the third an­nual Capri­corn Film Fes­ti­val.

Fes­ti­val di­rec­tor Luke Gra­ham an­nounced the con­tin­ued ex­pan­sion of the short film com­pe­ti­tion af­ter last year’s suc­cess where there were a record 22 short films made re­gion­ally for two Cen­tral Queens­land film­maker cat­e­gories.

Short films from all over Cen­tral Queens­land this year will com­pete within the three cat­e­gories, CAPS Open, CAPS Ju­nior and the newly es­tab­lished CAPS #lovethereef.

The short film com­pe­ti­tion also in­cludes Best Short Film and is open to film­mak­ers from around the world. En­tries are also open for fea­ture films and doc­u­men­taries with the to­tal prize pool at $4000.

CAPS Ju­nior is for short films made by CQ res­i­dents un­der the age of 18, in­clud­ing schools and stu­dent-made short films. The win­ner will re­ceive $1000, tro­phy and work ex­pe­ri­ence with pro­duc­tion house Scope Red on their next ma­jor film project.

CAPS Open is for CQ res­i­dents over 18 years. The win­ner will re­ceive $1000, a tro­phy and the ex­clu­sive hon­our of di­rect­ing the fol­low­ing year’s fes­ti­val promo trailer.

CAPS #lovethereef is re­stricted to CQ pri­mary school stu­dents. The max­i­mum length should be five min­utes and must con­tain a story or char­ac­ter el­e­ment on the Great Bar­rier Reef.

En­tries are open un­til Novem­ber 3 with of­fi­cial se­lec­tions no­ti­fied by Novem­ber 10. Sub­mis­sions ac­cepted online only.

“We are very ex­cited about lo­cal sub­mis­sions with some fan­tas­tic short films al­ready en­tered, and we look to triple our sub­mis­sions,” Mr Gra­ham said.
