Lithgow Halloween 2019 Film Competition
Lithgow City Council is excited to announce a great new addition to the Lithgow Halloween festival this year, a short film competition.
Lithgow Tourism team has worked with SF3 to introduce the film competition to this year’s event. SF3 are the organisers of the SmartFone Flick Fest, Australia’s international smartphone film festival and Council is delighted to have partnered with them to create the Lithgow Halloween Film Competition.
The competition requires short Halloween-themed films, up to a maximum of 5 minutes duration with a G-rating, to be shot on a mobile phone or tablet and then uploaded to the Lithgow Halloween website.
Lithgow City Council Mayor Ray Thompson said “I am very excited to see the inclusion of a Halloween film competition in the program for 2019. I look forward to seeing all the short-listed films on the night.”
Mayor Thompson added, “Lithgow Halloween has grown into a significant regional and state event that attracts visitors from far and wide, the film competition’s launch this year is a great new addition that will excite both returning and new visitors.”
Films will be judged in 2 category areas; ‘Most Creative’ and ‘Best Performance’. There will also be a ‘People’s Choice’ award and great prizes will be on offer. Visit the Lithgow Halloween website for competition full details.
The film competition finalists will have their movies screened at the Lithgow Community Cinema, 16 Main Street Lithgow on the day of Lithgow Halloween 2019; Saturday the 26th of October. That is when event attendees can vote for the ‘People’s Choice` award.
The formal awards ceremony, announcing the winning films, takes place on Sunday 27th October at the Western Sydney University Campus, Bridge Street Lithgow.
Mayor Thompson concluded by saying, “This year’s Lithgow Halloween is going to be better than ever. Lock in the weekend, this is one of the key weekends of the year when so many of our community get together to have a great time and celebrate the great location we live in.”
The Lithgow Halloween 2019 film competition opens on Friday the 9th of August.
