As a part of Reconciliation Week 2017 the Barossa Regional Gallery, in conjunction with Country Arts SA, will present 'Black Screen', a film festival of Indigenous and non-Indigenous filmmakers. An opportunity for a filmmaker from the Barossa, Gawler, Light & Adelaide Plains regions exists to have their work shown at this festival. This is a great opportunity for local filmmakers to display their work alongside a selection of diverse and interesting short films.

This opportunity is for filmmakers of all backgrounds - Indigenous and non-Indigenous. We welcome films in a diverse range of styles - narrative, documentary etc. Send us your most creative work! The only restriction is that the content of these films needs to be appropriate for school aged students. This will be critical in making a final selection.

Please upload your film to a standard streaming platform - Youtube, Vimeo, etc & send the link. Please do not send downloadable links.

There are no maximum or minimum lengths - please only be aware that your film will be a part of a 60 minute festival that will  include works from a number of other makers. Short works are very welcome, however, we are happy to see longer pieces as well. 

You're welcome to submit as many films as you like - if you'd like to submit more than three for consideration, please fill out the form again. If you'd only like to submit one, that is also fine.

Applications will be accepted until COB Monday May 1. Applications can be made here.

We look forward to seeing your work!
