A film festival about Covid-19

We are excited about the inaugural Covideo Twenty21 film festival which takes a reflective view of the pandemic of the past two years.

Patrons will be impressed and delighted with the Dome Theatre in Geelong (above Geelong regional Library in the heart of Geelong’s art precinct) and surrounding location.

The combination of intriguing film screenings, along with a night filled with entertainment, with comedians and performers, guest speakers and VIPs, all offered in this first time event, while celebrating the films of young film makers from around Australia, is what makes this a dynamic and must-go film festival.

You wont be disappointed.

The theme for the event is Covid 19. But, ultimately, we're looking for young people to register with our film making mentoring program to assist them to produce great films for the festival.

We want to support and empower the courageous, the creative, the new and promising... join us in 2022 for what is certain to be an enormously enjoyable and memorable event.

You will learn great skills and the art of story-telling through video, at the same be recognised for your efforts, work in a team and have a lot of fun.

There is nothing more satisfying than seeing your own film on a big screen in front of a live audience and seeing their reaction and applauding your work.
