Student Film Competition

Short Shorts is an independent Student Film Competition, devised and managed by KPAT and supported by Kaipatiki Local Board.

It is a way for primary, intermediate and secondary students in Kaipatiki to have fun and be creative as they let their imaginations run wild, while developing film-making skills as writers, directors, actors, and editors. 

All films are available on our Youtube Channel
