Search is on for Heart of Gold submissions

SUBMISSIONS for the ninth Heart of Gold International Short Film Festival have opened.

The Gympie festival, from October 6-9, showcases a program of more than 120 short films from all genres.

Heart of Gold's new artistic director, Emily Avila, is leading the search.

"We are looking for short films from all over the world that fit the unique vision of our festival - positive, witty, whimsical, entertaining, joyous, uplifting, quirky, enlightening and ground breaking," Ms Avila said.

The festival has become renowned for its high-quality program, largely thanks to an unique, methodical two-part screening system.

With a top prize of $5000 for the Best Short Film, selected shorts compete for a range of craft and choice awards, which this year are: Best Short Film, Best Australian Film, Best Student Film, Best Cinematography, Best Script, Gympie Gold Award and Screener's Choice Award.

 Early bird submissions via Withoutabox close June 1, with an extended deadline of July 31. For more information visit http://www.heartofgold.com.au.
