What is the WaveFest Short Film Festival?

The inaugural “WaveFest” film festival will be taking place on 13 August and screening in the Cosgrove Centre. This community-based film festival invites students to submit a short film inspired by the theme “the future is yours”.

This family-friendly night will involve pre-show/intermission entertainment and hospitality, bands, HSC artworks, and interviews with a panel of judges from the industry. Students’ short films will be screened and prizes awarded throughout the evening.

Waverley is calling all students who have a passion for creativity to see this as a window of opportunity to engage in something they are passionate about, and to have this displayed on the big screen.
