‘The quality has been excellent. From young film makers to independent and more experienced film makers, I have been amazed at some of the work that has been produced,’ Atwell College media teacher Dylan Tilbury said.

‘This has made it very tough to judge the films and will make it tough to choose winners.’

Mr Tilbury said more than 50 films had been entered into the Atwell Film Festival, meaning a wider range of categories could be opened up.

‘People can expect to see some quality films from Perth film makers in a range of categories,’ he said.

‘All the films are under 10 minutes, so I would call them all short films. But they are in a range of categories including music video and documentary.’

Mr Tilbury said he hoped to grow the festival in the coming years, with a focus on early filmmakers under 25. Atwell College will host the event this Friday at 7pm. Tickets are $5.
