2021 OEFF & JOEYS

Curator Gareth Tilson and MC Nathan Shooter at the 2020 One Eye Film Festival

The 9th edition of Dubbo Filmmakers’ One Eye Film Festival (OEFF) is now accepting entries of short films from around the world. OEFF celebrates short form film and aims to provide filmmakers with an appreciative audience, as well as encouraging local filmmakers of all ages and experiences to make films.

There are no prizes, there is no theme. We exist to promote filmmaking and film viewing around Dubbo, NSW, Australia and surrounding areas. We want to see as wide a range of films as possible.

All genres welcome – narrative, documentary, music video, experimental, video art – anything you can think of! Films do not necessarily need to be family friendly but we will not consider films with overly-graphic sex or violence.

Dubbo Filmmakers would like to acknowledge the support of Dubbo Regional Council which helps make this event possible.

The screening event will be held at Dubbo RSL Club Resort Theatrette on November 5, 2021.

Please note: live screening information may change due to public health orders.

One Eye Film Festival proudly accepts entries on FilmFreeway, the world’s #1 way to enter film festivals and creative contests. See our FilmFreeway page for rules and entry fees. Entries close October 25, 2021.
