Tourism Tasmania believes that short film is the perfect medium to showcase all that is brilliant about Tassie; from its natural beauty to the characters that dwell here. This is not about making a television commercial; this is about telling Tasmania’s story in your way. Be as creative as you wish. You might see Tasmania through the eyes of a visitor, follow the path of your convict ancestors, tell an evocative tale, or take a quirky approach.
Your film could be used to promote Tasmania to the world in various forms of communication including social media.
The Tasmanian Breath of Fresh Air (BOFA) Film Festival, Australia’s newest and freshest film festival in conjunction with Tourism Tasmania invites you to capture the “Essence of Tasmania” in a short film in English or subtitled, shot in high definition and no longer than 3 minutes in any of the following genres:
