Entries are now being accepted for the 7th Annual Deluxe Cinemas Young Filmmakers Showcase. Entry is open to all New Zealand students currently attending a primary, intermediate or secondary school. Films must be no longer that six minutes long but may be on any topic.

In other news: MovieFest is due to launch on the 9th of May — with Movies to be submitted by early August. You will have from 27th of June to make your short movie relating to the MovieFest topic.
