Red carpet HIGHLIGHTS showcase the 2019 festival!


We know you’ve been on the edge of your seat waiting for this year’s red carpet highlights video... Well, wait no more!

Check out the highlights from our 2019 festival, featuring red carpet interviews with the winners and clips from the winning films below!

We’d like to say a HUGE thanks to Event Cinemas Liverpool for having us back this year as our venue sponsor and helping us keep Made in the West in the western suburbs where it rightfully belongs! We couldn’t be more proud to showcase Western Sydney films on such amazing big screen and we are already looking forward to working with you again next year.

Hats off to Helder Fernandes, Daragh Lane and Casey Hope and for their work on the 2019 highlights video. This crew spent the night covering the event while everyone else sat back to enjoy the show, so we thank them very much for that. BIG thanks too, to Geline Garcia our talented editor - we love your work!

This year's Red Carpet Highlights video gives us all the feels and we hope you enjoy it too.

Amazing work Western Sydney!

Not only did we get nearly sixty short film submissions from Western Sydney filmmakers, but we were also seriously blown away by the quality of the films being submitted. The crazy thing is, we say that every year... and we mean it!

We love seeing Western Sydney raising the bar year upon year and we’re so proud of the film work being made in the west these days.

Of course, selecting 18 finalists was really challenging, so this year we also featured a showcase of the short films that only JUST missed out on being included in the line-up on the night. Take a look -- we certainly had our work cut out for us! These 22 short films blew us away.

Once again, we’d like to say thank you to everyone involved in Made in the West 2019 – from the 58 entrants, 18 VIP finalists, 22 semi-finalists, 3 major trophy winners and 8 individual award winners who submitted films, to our 9 VIP judges, 12 local sponsors, 2 hosts, 12 event crew, 4 volunteers and of course our 300-strong audience who contributed to the success of this year’s event – we couldn’t have done it without you!

Follow us on Facebook to keep up with our festival news over the summer.

Made in the West will return in 2020 to celebrate our 9th festival year and showcase plenty more amazing films made by Western Sydney filmmakers!
