Filmmaking equipment has never been more affordable and accessible; funding however is not always so easy to come by.

Four filmmakers who have created successful short films shared their tips and tricks to making a high quality, compelling short film on a small budget and getting it seen. They discussed the process of producing, marketing and distributing a short film in Australia, and the various avenues and opportunities that exist to help emerging filmmakers get their short film onto the screen.

The session also raised the question: short films or online web videos – what is the best way today to launch a filmmaking career?

Panellists included producer Andrea Distefano (The Globe Collector, Bran Nue Dae), producer, director Donna McRae (Johnny Ghost, Lonesome Dog Blues), producer Tom Davies (Dinner for Three) and producer, director Summer DeRoche (The Globe Collector, Small). Moderated by Caroline Waters (Open Channel).
