Take 30 Seconds in Dreamtime with the 17th London Australian Film Festival


  • Make a 30 second film on your phone…
  • Upload it to the Wall at TNT’s Facebook Page…
  • Get your Friends to Like it and win!


We are looking for concise statements from the Luhrmanns and Weirs, Millers and Hillcoats of the future, be they pearls of wisdom or a few silly seconds. Either way, spin a 30 second cinematic yarn on the theme of dreams and be in to win an unlimited LAFF pass for two and more lo-fi film gear!

Head to the TNT Competitions tab at our Facebook Page for the full brief. Once you’ve found some wily investors to pool, say, 50p each for the catering budget (party pies, lamingtons, baked bean sangers, snags, fairy bread for desert, washed down with raspberry cordial), gather your crew, brainstorm a script and call action! When you’re ready to premiere, post your masterpiece in succinct cinema to TNT’s Facebook Page.

The 30 second film with the most Likes wins!
