Nextwave Youth Film Festival

SWIFF’s Nextwave Youth Film Festival, now in its sixth year, is on the hunt for the next wave of young Regional filmmakers. If you’re aged between 10 – 25 years, live within regional Australia, keen to make a film, get your work seen and win some awesome prizes…then Screenwave International Film Festival (SWIFF) want to hear from you!

The Nextwave Youth Film Competition is free to enter with submissions open May 1st – Sept 21st 2020 and films are to creatively include the phrase, “What’s next?” The best short films are selected to be screened in front of sell-out crowds that attend the Nextwave Youth Film Awards next January as part of the Screenwave International Film Festival in Coffs Harbour, which takes place 7-22 January 2021.
