30 Seconds to Randwick

Randwick Council and UNSW have teamed up to create a short film competition that is open to all UNSW students.

"We want students to tell a 30-second story about Randwick that is meaningful, provocative, beautiful, inspiring and moving, featuring the people or the locations of Randwick," said Randwick Mayor Lindsay Shurey.

The winning entry will be used to promote living in Randwick and Randwick City Council. It will be screened before all Sydney Film Festival films at the Randwick Ritz and before five films screened in Sydney Central locations.

“I’d love for Randwick to become known as a cultural centre for art and creativity,” said Mayor Shurey. “Nurturing young talent and providing them with the opportunity to be part of a world-renowned film festival is one of the ways we’ll get there.

"The support we’ve received from the Sydney Film Festival and UNSW tells us there is a real desire in the community to further develop our artistic side, so I hope students jump on board and show us the depth of talent that we’ve got.”

Students can enter the competition by uploading their film to The film should include the UNSW and Randwick Council logos and be uploaded no later than Friday April 13, 2018.

The Sydney Film Festival runs from 6-17 June, 2018.
