The Mocktail Awards 2020

The Mocktail Award is an exciting award that is dedicated to showcasing the talent of young, aspiring high school filmmakers, and it feeds into the much anticipated Martini Film Awards. In its 12th year the Martini Awards brings together our film and animation students and recent alumni, as we screen and celebrate the best student films.

We invite high school students to submit their short film for The Mocktail Awards. The nominated films will be showcased and the winner will be awarded at the prestigious Martini Awards to be held in 2020.

This invitation is open to all high school students based in New South Wales, ACT, Victoria and Queensland who have completed a short film between 1 January 2019 to 10 May 2020. We encourage students to get involved as there is a prize for the winner and also a prize for their school!


The winning film will receive over $2,500 worth of prizes.
