But A Split Second decision could be the start of a successful film career for an upcoming filmmaker as the Transport Accident Commission launches its short-film competition.

The TAC has partnered with the Melbourne International Film Festival for the Split Second Film Competition.

The competition challenges Victorians between 18 and 25 to enter a short film idea that features a message about avoiding distractions while driving and is a reminder for filmgoers to turn off their phones. Judged by a panel of film and advertising industry professionals, the winning concept will receive a $5000 prize and will work with a professional production company to bring their film to life using a $50,000 budget.


The TAC welcomes your feedback and enquiries.
