Short and sweet success
THE inaugural Clarence Valley Regional Short Film Festival will be screened tomorrow night at Grafton's historical Saraton Theatre.
Mayor Richie Williamson said it's great to see the Clarence Valley Regional Short Film Festival up and running.
"This is a great platform for our local filmmakers to express their individual talents in front of a live audience at a first-class theatre venue. Well done to all those who entered and I look forward to viewing the short films."
"This year's theme of water has attracted an eclectic range of films from Clarence Valley filmmakers and the mix of styles will guarantee a great night's viewing," said Martyn Swain, film festival organiser.
"Local filmmakers and film stars will be excited to see their productions on the big screen and filmgoers won't be disappointed by the range of works."
The short films have been made by children as young as 10 and other categories include intermediate and senior age groups.
The best 12 entries will be shown on the night.
"Next year there will be more time for people to prepare films, so we expect the festival will just grow and grow," Mr Swain said.
Trophies and awards will be presented at the end of the evening.
Light refreshments will be served on the red carpet from 6pm and local musician Greg Schubert will provide entertainment prior to the screening.
The films screened will be suitable for viewing by all age groups. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for children.
