The Angry Film Festival 2012

The Angry Film Festival was created in 2004 by Festival Director Tom Vogel. Films do not have to be of an ‘angry nature’ as the festival name suggests.

The festival was named after Tom’s first attempt at his own short film ‘The Angry Penguin.’ The only criteria, is that films be under fifteen minutes.

The Angry Film Festival is accepting submissions until the 30th of January 2012. So to all you film makers out there, now is your chance to have your talent exposed to a possible international audience.

The entry fee for Aussie films is only $25 and for international films, entries are free. Plus every entry submitted also receives a one year membership to

Keep in mind that if your film doesn’t get through as a finalist, it still has a chance to be selected for West Side Shorts, a monthly offshoot from Angry.
