Celebrating its fifth year in 2010, the Hillside Film Festival is calling for entries from Victoria’s most promising young filmmakers. The festival gives emerging filmmakers the opportunity to see their films on the big screen in front of a large audience, be judged professionally by some of the most respected filmmakers and writers in the country, and win some fantastic prizes along the way.   

Screened in one of Victoria’s most-beautiful cinemas, the Cameo Outdoor Cinema in Belgrave, the festival proudly focuses on artistic excellence and innovation, celebrating great filmmaking across all genres, styles and budgets. We want to hear from young filmmakers with a unique voice, a story to tell and a fresh approach to filmmaking – not just those with the best equipment or famous friends. Industry judges include Sandra Sciberras, director of the AFI award-winning ‘Caterpillar Wish’ (AUS 2006), and Bridget Callow, producer of the AFI-nominated ‘Bitter and Twisted’ (AUS 2008).

This year, filmmakers are competing for a stack of cash and awards, including a $1,000 cash prize from The Upwey & District Community Bank Group and a prize pack from Madman Entertainment. Selected films will also feature on the small screen, presented on Foxtel’s Aurora Community Channel as part of Youth Week 2010.

The filmmaker is making a film on a real life incident from history and literature about a character called the Bhawal Sannyasi based on the book called the Princely Imposter. He is in the preprodcution stage when he gets the bad new that he can't shoot in the location he had selected during the recee stage, so his assistant advises him to compromise by shooting in available cheap village locales, which threatens to change his plot, but he has to go ahead with the shoot,so he does, sacrificing his relationship with a girl who is being pressurized by her parents to marry an architect, in the process. What happens to the lives of both the film maker and his protagonist unfolds in the film.

Voice of Jerusalem

Director: Ofer naim.
Those who remember Jerusalem in its splendor have called it the city of gold. It is a city remembered for its glorious past but with no future. Instead of dealing with the present, people remain involved in the past. This is what stands in the way of Jerusalem’s survival. What happened to “Jerusalem of Gold”? Is there any hope or solution to the problems surrounding Jerusalem? Which of the three religions should have the right to control Jerusalem? Should Jerusalem be the capital city? Maybe all that is happening in Jerusalem stems from the ”Jerusalem Syndrome” that causes one to lose touch with reality and ones stability. Did Israel and Jerusalem’s leaders suffer from this syndrome as well? This movie tries to answer many of these questions talking to a number of people from various walks of life in this unique city and through the many songs sung longingly about this city, over time.

Naked Sushi Movie

Director: Patricia DiSalvo Viayra.
What Happens when a couple on a blind date accidentally go to an adult-themed restaurant?

Hollow Feet

Director: Nick Walters .
The film is an oddly charming and unique love story that explores a twisted psychological predicament as in the ‘extremist’ tradition of Japanese and South Korean cinema… A big city at night. Two young cyborg lovers (a Japanese boy and girl) are on the run from repair men. The couple reaches a bridge and agrees to jump to escape to a better world but as they step off the boy pulls out at the last moment. After a literal kiss of death (from the figure of Death itself) the girl's ghost rises from her body and looks around for her partner, but the boy sneaks off, ashamed he failed to keep his promise. Whilst sulking and hidden in a giant cardboard box (once used to contain a cyber), a cunning idea strikes the boy – one which he thinks will allow him to face the girl with respect intact ...but it backfires spectacularly and he wanders the night streets in a sulk, his various comical attempts to terminate himself intermittently punctuating his gloom. Out of ideas and resigned to the fact that he will never again be with the girl, a passing emergency siren leads him on a chase through the night streets as he hunts down the figure of Death itself... The film shares a combination of the mythical tone and dark humour of Old Boy with the playful, dream-like tone of Punch Drunk Love.

“EASTWARDS” is the result of a long journey. Bosnia is the focus, with its cumbersome past and its present as much uncertain as controversial. Sarajevo, Mostar, Srebrenica, different solicitations coming out meeting people and their present and past history. Sarajevo is the capital. The memory became its political structure, and lights up consequent opportunities to reflection and debate. Mostar is symbolized by the Old Bridge, heart of a slow beat of a social and political life which fails to heat the peripheral wings of the city still shattered in the reality of ghettos, Croatians and Muslims. And finally Srebrenica, the town of women, the city of pain. 12,000 dead (institutionally they say 8372, but in reality missing people is 4000 more). Every year on 11th of July it takes place the big ceremony for the burying of the hundreds of bodies still found in mass graves newly identified. Hatidza Mehmedovic' is from Srebrenica, she is the main character of the movie. Only she could transmit the emotional charge affecting the director because of her ability to bear mourning (during the genocide of 1995 she lost her only two children, her husband, her brothers, her father..)

Gábor is an office cleaner. Wearing overalls and a baseball hat, he seems insignificant. Working on the night shift, Gábor rarely has any contact with his employers, yet he learns everything about them by thoroughly analyzing their garbage. Since he is almost invisible, nobody suspects that Gábor is, in fact, a con man who carefully chooses his victims by the trash they leave behind. His targets are mostly disillusioned, lonely women. In a few months he destroys all their romantic illusions by taking all their savings. Having an unusually high IQ and an ability to assume various personalities, Gábor is an expert in manipulation. When he gets a job at a psychologist's office, Gábor meets Hanna, an injured dancer who happens to be the daughter of a millionaire. Insecure and vulnerable, Hanna seems to be the perfect victim. Gábor pretends to be a doctor who can cure her body and her soul, an irresistible offer for a desperate woman. Everything goes according to plan until Gábor falls in love with Hanna and has to make a hard decision between her and the money.
