GALC runs an annual competition called the ‘Nintila: 5-Minute Phone Film Competition’.
Nintila is a film competition with a difference. Each film must be shot and edited on a phone and be between 3 and 5 minutes in length. Competition rules are that 50% of the dialogue, subtitles or hand signs in the film must be in a Goldfields Aboriginal language. The only other rule is that the film must be G or PG rated for showing in public.
In 2020, entries for Nintila are due by 4pm Friday 26th of June 2020. Competition winners will be announced on GALC’s Facebook page on Friday 10th July 2020.
Watch out for the entry form on here late April 2020!

|Category 2||Women aged 23+||$1,000 prize|
|Category 3||Men aged 23+||$1,000 prize|
