2020 SUBMISSIONS ADVICE re EVENT DATE CHANGES
The Heart of Gold International Short Film Festival has made the decision to move our next festival from October 2020 to mid-2021, due to the COVID 19 restrictions that have impacted everyone worldwide.
Any film that has been submitted date in 2020, will be added to the 2021 festival submissions pool. The film will then be considered for inclusion in our 2021 Festival. If there is a reason why a film is not relevant for the 2021 festival please contact us as soon as possible and we will be able to refund the full cost of your film submission fee, minus any 3rd party processing fees.
For many filmmakers who have made multiple submissions to our festival over the years, we thank you for your ongoing support. It is such a pleasure to promote your films that resonate with our aims. For those filmmakers who have submitted for the very first time, thank you, and be assured that your film will be considered with equal measure for 2021.
2021 SUBMISSIONS (Opening Dates To Be Advised)
In 2021 we will continue with our aim to program films that are uplifting, heartwarming and that resonate emotionally with our audiences, as well as supporting emerging Australian filmmakers and film students.
Selected shorts compete for a range of jury awards.
