Hopeland’s panel of esteemed film critics have made their decision:  a flick about a Labrador called Juliet is the winner of Hope 1032’s first ever short film competition.

The Big Hero Short Film Competition called for entries of 2 minutes or less, based on the theme Big Heroes.

The winning film, titled The Hero In Brown, was from a young Hornsby girl named Sam McIntyre – who roped in not only her brothers to act in her film, but Juliette her hero and pet brown Labrador.

Sam won herself an iPad mini for her efforts, and her film was screened in front of a large audience at Dan & Laura’s Outdoor Movie Night, before a screening of Big Hero 6.

Special mentions go to Flynn Boffo for his highly creative and detailed Lego animation Super Awesome Panda Man, and Chloe Hayes for her movie Big Ted The Big Hero. Other entries ranged from music videos to family dramas, slapstick silent films to spiritual metaphors. A selection of entries is featured below.
