Students invited to submit films about democracy

Secondary school students have until Friday to enter a short film competition by NSW Parliament, according to Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch.

She said the theme was "Parliament: why do we need it?"

Ms Tesch said the theme served as a reminder of the importance of democracy.

"Parliament is an incredibly important institution that holds our Government to account and ensures that all voices are heard in making key decisions for our state and our country," she said.

"We are fortunate to have a robust and healthy system of government in Australia which unfortunately is not the same for every country."

The Parli-Flicks Short Film Award is sponsored by the Australasian Study of Parliament Group and is open to students in Years 7 to 12.

The overall winner will receive $250 in prize money and the state Parli-Flicks trophy.

The short film can be fictional or documentary in style, use live action or animation, be serious or light-hearted.

Films must run for no longer than 60 seconds and students can submit as an individual or in a group of up to five.

The winners will be invited to an awards night at the NSW Parliament on September 15, the International Day of Democracy.
