45 SECONDS. $50K BUDGET. $5K CASH.
Following the success of the 2018 competition, the Split Second Film Competition is back for its second year.
Run by the Transport Accident Commission (TAC), the Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF), and the Taboo Group, the competition aims to change the way young people think about using mobile phones in cars. As part of DUSA’s partnership with TAC, we are encouraging the bright and innovate minds of Deakin to enter the competition. The age limit to enter is 18 – 25.
It’s simple, just submit an idea for a 45 second film that makes people think twice about driving while distracted.
Up for the challenge? You could win $50k budget to have your idea produced by award-winning production house Airbag and watch your film across over 500 screenings at MIFF (including the impressive Opening Night Gala). And if that’s not enough incentive, you’ll also score $5k cash just for you!
Competition opens Wednesday 3 April 2019
Competition closes Monday 6 May 2019
Winner announced Friday 24 May 2019
