Canberra’s favourite short film festival returns for it’s 9th event in 2012 and the theme for the competition has just been announced! The 2012 Theme is: WINNING. The theme is tied into the 100th anniversary of the win by Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahoney Griffin to plan the city of Canberra. The story of their entry and selection is quite an interesting one. A late decision to enter, a push from Marion to Walter, a rush to the deadline… A great story, more about which can be read HERE. The dates:
Items Announcement: Friday 24th February at Legislative Assembly, Civic Square
Filmmaking: 24th Feb – 5th March 2012, all over Canberra
Top Twelve Screening: Friday 9th March

FROM AFI AACTA AWARDS
Don McAlpine announced as first AACTA Award recipient
Australian cinematography legend, Donald M. McAlpine (ACS/ASC), was today announced the recipient of the nation’s highest screen accolade – the AACTA Raymond Longford Award.
The announcement sees McAlpine join an illustrious group of Australian screen greats, each of whom are previous AFI Raymond Long Award recipients, including Peter Weir, Geoffrey Rush, Fred Schepisi, Charles ‘Bud’ Tingwell and Jack Thompson.
McAlpine’s career spans more than 50 films made over 40 years, and includes Australian classics such as Don’s Party and ‘Breaker’ Morant, through to international blockbusters such as Predator, Patriot Games and X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
He has received numerous accolades including an Oscar® and BAFTA nomination for Best Cinematography for Moulin Rouge!, a BAFTA nomination for William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet, as well as three AFI Awards.
This marks the first award to be bestowed by AACTA, which in just one week (on 30 November 2011) will reveal all nominees for the inaugural Samsung AACTA Awards.
McAlpine will be officially awarded with a special presentation at the Samsung AACTA Awards Luncheon presented by Digital Pictures on Sunday 15 January, which will include special tributes by fellow screen luminaries Bruce Beresford, Jack Thompson and P.J. Hogan.
AFI | AACTA CEO, Damian Trewhella, said: “Don McAlpine is a most deserving recipient of the Raymond Longford Award, the highest accolade which AACTA can bestow on an individual, and we are delighted that such an outstanding screen practitioner is the first person to be awarded by AACTA.”
Long time friend and colleague, Jack Thompson AM, informed McAlpine in person that he had been named the AACTA Raymond Longford Award recipient by reading a heart-felt tribute – a video clip of which can be viewed on the AACTA website.
To see the clip, to read tributes to McAlpine and to read about McAlpine’s work, visit the AACTA website.
