IN WHAT may be a stepping stone to The Oscars, Clarence Valley film makers have the chance to showcase their talents for the 2013 Clarence Valley Regional Film Festival.
Organiser Marty Wells said several of entries had already been submitted, but with only one week until deadline, it was time to act.
"Entries close Friday, October 11 - which will be here before you know it," Mr Wells said.
And if any further encouragement was needed, Mr Wells said a handsome prize pool was on offer.
"Bendigo Bank South Grafton have sponsored the festival to the tune of $1000," he said.
All films should be three to seven minutes in length and be suitable for general exhibition.
Entries, which cost $20, must be in MOV format.
Categories are: Open over 18 years old; Open under 18 years old; High School; Primary School; and movies shot on a phone.
A special screening will be held at the Saraton Theatre on Sunday, October 27. The competition is in its second year.
