The STUFFit Student Film Festival is an exciting youth
initiative run by a small group of dedicated students and three adult
facilitators. It is a film festival competition FOR high school students BY
high school students. STUFFit offers students a platform to share their
creative and emerging film talents.
All registered secondary school students can enter their films. The
STUFFit management team views the films to create a shortlist and professional
filmmakers make the final judgements. The shortlisted and finalist films are
viewed on the big screen at our annual event. Following the screening, there is
an Awards ceremony where the winner and runner-up from each category will
receive an awesome film related prize.
The first STUFFit Student Film event took place at the Nambour
Civic Centre in 2012. For the past four
years we have held the event and Awards presentation at BCC Cinemas,
Maroochydore. This year, we are returning to Nambour to hold the 2019 STUFFit
Student Film Festival at the Majestic Cinema on the 12 October.
As of 2018, the STUFFit
Student Film Festival has gone international, receiving film entries from
Canada, New Zealand, America and Russia. This exciting growth has put STUFFit on the map
