TALL STORIES FILM PROJECT

A film festival project was run in conjuction with the Townsville Cultural Fest 2018 with participants encouraged to submit short three minute films taken on their mobile phones telling a story about themselves or someone they know. On the last night of the Cultural Fest winners were picked with prizes awarded. Some of the films collected can be seen below. Thank you to all those who participated in the project!
