KPAT Annual Student Film Competition: Short Shorts

Short Shorts 2019 Competition Theme Announced!

We are delighted to announce that the theme for Short Shorts 2019 is “Our Dreams“.

Building on four successful years, we are already contacting schools in Kaipatiki to invite their students’ participation in our 2019 short film competition.

The theme “Our Dreams” allows primary, intermediate and secondary students to let their imaginations run wild while exploring new skills, and having fun!

We look forward to viewing more creative mini-movie masterpieces from Kaipatiki’s inventive students.

More details will be announced early in the New Year. In the meantime, include this exciting project in your plans for 2019.
