Welcome to [REC] Ya Shorts Youth Film Festival - finding the next generation of Regional Filmmakers!

Do you have a great story to tell? Then we want to see it!

[REC] Ya Shorts Youth Film Festival, now in its fourth year, is on the hunt for the next generation of young filmmakers from Regional Australia.

The festival is comprised of 3 components: Film workshops in schools and education centres throughout the Regional NSW, teaching young people 12 to 25 how to write, shoot, and edit short films.
  • Film Competition- submit your short film into the comp to win some incredible prizes, to be announced soon!
  • Have your film selected as a finalist and screen for family, friends and the community during the 2019 Screenwave International Film Festival (SWIFF) in January. This will be a ticketed, seated event and includes the REC Ya Shorts Awards Presentation. More details to come!
