By September 19, 2007One Comment

The Maroondah Snippets, is a youth film festival that was developed by young people in conjunction with Maroondah’s Youth Services Team. The award ceremony, held at the cinemas at Ringwood Hoyts, showcased the six short films and provided an opportunity to speak to each of the entrants.

Winners under each of the categories were:

  • Best School: Southwood Boys Grammar School, for supporting two films for this year’s festival;
  • Best Acting: ‘Tonight Today with not so current affairs in 60 seconds’ (Southwood Boys Grammar School);
  • Best Script: ‘Bad Day’ (Southwood Boys Grammar School);
  • Best Cinematography: ‘Pedaled by Fate’ (Southwood Boys Grammar School);
  • Best Film: ‘documenTRY’ (Swinburne College), and
  • Best Soundtrack: ‘Trolley Boyz’ (KYM Multi Media Class)

This marked Maroondah’s first Youth Film Festival but with strong community interest it is hoped to make Snippets an annual event to showcase the many multimedia and cinematographic skills of our youth.
