Short Films

Our short film program showcases WA filmmakers, including premieres of short films especially made for TEDxPerth. 
There are two ways to be involved. You can submit your short film (under 3 minutes) to [email protected]. And you can be part of TEDxPerth by joining us as a volunteer filmmaker: our curation team need filmmakers interested in turning some of our ideas worth spreading into short films.
