$10,000 worth of cash prizes to be shared.

Subjects to explore include: current refugee situations, LGBT intolerance, homeless by choice, gambling and economic pressures and more.

Friday 7.00 pm 11th April 2014, teams are randomly allocated a subject and line of dialogue to include in their short film and then upload it by Sunday 12:00 midnight 11th May 2014.

Who will take out the coveted boxer shorts trophy for 1st prize, plus $5,000 cash?
