Comments Comments

Sony Australia's annual Catchlight Film Festival, formerly the Sony Film Festival, has opened for entries. 

Aimed at celebrating the best short-form filmmaking shot on Sony cameras across Australia and New Zealand, the Catchlight Festival aims to encourage filmmakers at all levels who are using the Sony system to capture their stories.

New for 2022 is a dedicated Student Fiction category.

“We were absolutely blown away by the quantity and quality of the films submitted in our inaugural Film Festival in 2021, and we are delighted to have an opportunity to showcase the work of our student filmmakers in 2022 with a dedicated category,” said  Jun Yoon, Head of Digital Imaging.

In 2022, Catchlight Film Festival includes four categories; Fiction (scripted), Non-Fiction (documentary), the new Student Fiction category and Music Video. Each category-winning film will win a unique 'experience' specific to that category, as well as a prize package of Sony digital imaging products.

You can see the finalists from last year's edition of the competition here. 

Entries are open now, and close for submissions at 11:59PM AEST on Wednesday, 15 June 2022.
