Enlighten Festival is shining a spotlight on Canberra’s talented filmmakers as competition sparks creativity.
For the 17th year of Lights! Canberra! Action! the theme is ‘planted,’ which will tie in with the International Year of the Plant as well as 100 years since Canberra began populating. Filmmakers will also be given a list of ten items to include in their movie, with only ten days to shoot, edit and produce a seven minute film.
The screening of the top twelve finalists will again take place outdoors in the Senate Rose Gardens at the Museum of Australian Democracy, with the awards winners announced immediately after the screening.
Bring your chair, bean bag or blanket and settle in for a great night of film viewing. Picnics are welcome and food trucks will be on site providing movie snacks. Family friendly films will be screened before the intermission.
