Calling all screen creatives, cast and crew: Are you the Sunshine Coast’s next film or TV star?

The Sunny Coast Showdown will return with a mission to turn the Sunshine Coast into Sunnywood and to launch the next stars of the big and small screens.
The screen incubator and festival is the brainchild of Powderfinger’s Jon Coghill and former USA Survivor producer Dan Munday who, together with the Sunshine Coast Screen Collective, are looking to boost the local film and TV industry.
The 2023 event may be bigger and better but the idea is still the same – to give local screenwriters, filmmakers, cast and crew an opportunity to produce and deliver great projects and showcase them at a community festival event.
The Sunny Coast Showdown is a not-for-profit screen talent and idea incubator where successful applicants receive funding, support and mentoring to develop and produce their projects.
Submissions open for Showdown 2023 on January 23 and feature six categories:
2 x scripted short films
1 x local indigenous project
1 x Powderfinger music video
2 x unscripted projects
