Welcome to the Nextwave of Regional Filmmakers

Big news this year! REC Ya Shorts Youth Film Festival is changing, with SWIFF’s new Nextwave program taking its place - finding and developing the next generation of young regional filmmakers. 

This year we set a task for all filmmakers. Make a short film under 6 minutes, with the theme of “Escape”, and to include a “Sign”. The creativity on offer this year has been second to none, so come along and get behind the filmmakers of the future. 

Most films this year were a result of over 50 workshops in 11 regions across NSW - the program’s biggest workshop tour yet. 

Join us at the all new Nextwave Youth Film Awards on Friday January 18th at C.ex Coffs’ Auditorium for the premiere of the top 20 short film finalists for 2018, proudly supported by C.ex Group. 

Over $40,000 in prizes will be awarded on the night!

Doors open Friday 18 Jan, 6.00pm for 6.30pm start at C.ex Coffs. 

Regular ticket pricing applies.
