Little Big Shots is your very own film festival and we want you to get involved in as many ways as possible.



1. Come along

Little Big Shots tours right around Australia, and even overseas, so chances are there’ll be a festival screening near you soon. Check out our Program page to see when the festival will be dropping by your home town.

2. Have your say

Everyone has an opinion on a film – we’d love to hear yours. Kids under 15 attending Little Big Shots in Melbourne are encouraged to write a review of one of the films screening in the festival. The best 10 scribes will win a spot on the next year’s Little Big Shots children’s jury, plus a season pass to the next year's festival and have their winning work published on the Little Big Shots website. Wowee!

Send your review, complete with name, age and contact details, to or to:

Little Big Shots Film Reviewing Competition
PO Box 4308
Richmond East
VIC   3121

Entries close in July, 2012 after the festival is completed.

Read the winning entries for 2011.

If you don’t live in Melbourne, we’d still love to hear what you thought of the films in the festival. Contact us and let us know!
