Congratulations to the winners of the Roxy5 Short Film Competition

The Roxy5 Short Film Competition, presented by Capital E and Miramar Creative Ltd, is an annual short film competition for school students years 7-13. Students from across the greater Wellington region are challenged to create their own short film incorporating three essential elements unique to each year.

The films are judged according to creative story telling potential, and there are a host of prizes to be won. In 2018, the programme brings back the Supreme Winner Award, Runner Up Award and the People’s Choice Award, as well as mentoring prizes for Best Original Musical Score and Best VFX, plus there are cash prizes up for grabs! The Supreme Winning Team go on an amazing practical film making journey to re-make their film under the guidance of professional industry mentors and Capital E Digital Tutors.

This is a unique opportunity that brings together upcoming talent with film professionals, and industry-related businesses, organisations and partners who share the common goal of a sustainable, healthy film industry here in Wellington. The Roxy5 Short Film Competition aims to benefit children and young people by providing authentic opportunities to start them on the path to successful careers in creative digital industries.
