The My Story My Content Short Film Competition is your opportunity to tell a unique story about YOU, your creativity and why it is worth protecting.
Australia has a world-class film and television industry and you’re closer to it than you think. Around 900,000 Australians owe their jobs – directly or indirectly – to creative industries. Tens of thousands of Australian small businesses – from dry cleaners to caterers, who proudly quote the movie business as one of their clients – support film and television production.
Last year alone, film and television industries in Australia contributed over $5 billion to the Australian economy and generated around 49,000 full-time equivalent jobs.
When you purchase legitimate content you help support a thriving movie and television industry, which means more jobs, a stronger economy, and a greater array of entertainment choices for everyone.
