Every year, the Mud and Saltwater Short Film Fest challenges filmmakers from across the Kimberley, experienced and inexperienced, to tell a story in 2 minutes. The judges Paul Bell (Feral Films), Mark Jones (Mark Jones Films) and Neil Turner (PAKAM) selected ‘Where’s ya bin’ as the Best Overall 2 Minute Short Film and ‘Stay’ the Best Film from an Emerging Filmmaker. For innovation, cleverness, and brevity – every film submitted deserves recognition.
The short films were screened at Matso’s on September 6 to an enthusiastic audience. Thanks to the filmmakers and crews, Matsos for hosting the screening, PAKAM for the screen and projector, Paul Bell for the projection and judging along with Neil Turner and Mark Jones.
