Get Filming For The Raglan Film Festival

It’sdeadlinetimefortheRaglanArtsFilm Festival Awards’ entry forms, but have no fear there’s still plenty of time to get

filming. The deadline of Friday 16 July at 2pm is for the entry forms only and the completed film is not due until Friday 23 July at 2pm.

Old School Arts Centre manager Jacqueline Anderson reckons Raglan creatives know how to come up with a piece of cinematic brilliance in a short space of time. “It’s so like our wonderful community of creatives to pull

something extraordinary out of the bag last minute.”

Despite Lockdown causing the cancellation of the 2020 festival, Jacqueline is sure there is plenty of filmmaking that happened last year just waiting to see the light of day.

No need for fancy equipment, some of the top films over the last few festivals were made using a mobile phone and free online video editors

“The hard work is coming up with a cool storyline. Once you have that you can whip

out your equipment and start filming,” she says.

Open to all ages and the only criteria is the film must be associated with Raglan Whaingaroa. Awards and prizes – including cash and vouchers – will be presented at a Red Carpet Awards Night on Saturday 25 September.
