Entries will soon be open for the 2016 Peninsula Short Film Festival.
Slated for February 2016, the festival will be in its fifth year and is an ever-growing event that has placed Rosebud firmly in the arts scene.
The winner of the major prize will take home $5000 in cash after being judged by a panel of celebrities on the night.
Festival director and Australian actor Steve Bastoni encouraged people to submit their entries to the competition when they open later this month.
All it takes is one good idea, he said.
“We had an entry in this year’s festival and it was the first film the filmmaker had ever made.
“To be shortlisted for a film festival on your first short film is amazing.”
Entries open in late September, there is a $30 (+ GST) entry fee and films are accepted from Australia and overseas.
The 12 finalists will be announced in January, with the winners judged at the festival in February.
