Where: Arena Theatre
The Black Bird Film festival is a short film festival that will screen a selection of short films.
This festival is for those dreamers trying to find answers for their own big questions.
Black Bird Film Festival screens films made by those who have the most heart. We wanted to give an opportunity to people who love to make films, simple because they love it – and don’t have a big budget to make one. It’s purely a passion project, for passion projects.
The categories are as follows:
Best Script: The Songbird
Best Editing: The Magpie
Best Cinematographer: The Owl
Best Director: The Cuckoo
Best Micro-short: The Hummingbird
Best Performance: The Peacock
Each submitter was required to submit a cover letter entitled ‘follow your dreams’ as a formal requirement for the festival. This was in the hopes to get people talking about what they love about films and what it is about making them that makes us so happy. The idea is to bring together people who communicate through filmmaking, regardless of budget, skillset, education or opportunity.
