Film project challenge
The sixth annual 48-Hour Film Project returns on October 11-13 for a weekend of novice, amateur and professional filmmaking.
Filmmakers from all ages and skills compete to see who can make the best short film in only 48 hours. At 7pm on October 11 the teams receive a genre, character, prop and line of dialogue to work into their film and must start uploading a four- to seven-minute film by 7pm on October 13.
The winning team receives $8000 from Parramatta CIty Council and goes up against films worldwide.
Chance to help out
Glenmore Park Town Centre has extended a paw to Penrith animal charity Loved Ones Animal Rescue by providing a donation box in the centre.
Customers are urged to show their support by donating dog and cat food, toys, clean bedding and clothes.
All donations are being managed and received by organiser Mandy Schirmer who said any small donations greatly offset the cost of managing the re-homing and fostering operations.
Glenmore Park Town Centre is at 1 Town Terrace, Glenmore Park. Details: www.facebook.com/ GlenmoreParkTownCentre or Loved Ones Animal Rescue Facebook page: www.facebook.com/
