Presented by Red Hot Arts Central Australia and ABC Open, The Alice Springs Lens Flair Film Festival annual film festival in Alice Springs, Central Australia. The festival consists of two sections, the workshops and the 24 hour film challenge.


We are offering multiple workshops for beginners and established film makers giving you the opportunity to learn new techniques, improve your skills and connect with others with a passion for film making.

All workshops are FREE including the new special Youth Focused session for people ages 12- 18, which will be a one day crash course designed to take aspiring film types through the process of script writing, storyboarding, shooting and editing.

There is also the option of  two master-class workshops held by two established film makers for those who are more established within the local film making scene.

24 Hour Film Challenge:

All are invited to participate, those who attended the workshops or not, in the the Lens Flair 24 Hour Film challenge.  This lays down a tantalising challenge to filmmakers; put your skills to the test by shooting, editing and delivering a 5-minute masterpiece in just 24 hours. Not only are filmmakers set the challenge of creating a 5 minute film in a single day, they must also include a certain number of ingredients from the “List of Special Things” – these can be items, dialogue, actions or concepts.
