2018 Film Submissions
In 2018 TeFF will be screening a series of short films.
Some of these will be apart of our much anticipated "Lounge Screenings" showing programs of exciting, important and entertaining short eco films in private homes and gardens around Hobart.
Highland Life Short Program -
We will also be screening a small selection of shorts during the April 12-15 Ruby Rose 30th Anniversary Festival. These short films will be theme specific! Only short films (narrative or documentary) that speak to the topic of life as it was (1920s -1940s) in rural / highland areas around the world.

All films must have some environmental focus or an aspect of environment in the story line.
We encourage the films submitted to be engaging and come from the premise that caring about the environment need not be boring.
Filmmakers are encouraged to submit fiction films that have an environmental flavour. Or that have been made environmentally minded (ie recycled sets, costumes, digital film etc)
Selected films can be in .MOV or .MP4
Highland Life films will be required in DCP 24 or 25fps!
Foreign language films must be made available with the original language soundtrack and English Subtitles.

JUDGING & SELECTION

All entrants will be notified on or before April 1, 2018.
The Tasmanian eco Film Festival cannot pay to screen your film, as we are a non-profit and we need to spend the money we get from submissions for processing, administration and on assuring the festival offers a good experience to the audience and filmmaker.
By submitting their entry, the entrant guarantees that they have obtained all necessary rights and clearances, and that they have legal right to publicly screen and enter their entry into the Tasmanian eco Film Festival.
