We received an HUGE number of entries for In The Bin 2012... so much so that we have had to push the festival dates back to January 2013. (OK so it is true we did receive way too many entries but the truth is we have a huge project about to start in Barcaldine in September which would have been our original festival dates.) That and we are also running a Pozible campaign to raise the full budget and make sure we run a successful festival in Currumbin. http://pozible.com/inthebin
Film makers will be advised of their selection in October once we have finished the Barcaldine project.
In The Bin has received some great support from Screen Queensland for 2012 which will see us continuing things in Queensland. AWESOME!!! We have had some great events already in Gladstone, Mackay, and Ipswich to name a few...

Short Lived Break
Travelling through regional and rural Australia is not a privilege many people get to experience and we are grateful for the people we meet and the good times we have. Many times we sit back and recall stories and tails of days on the road.
As the second half of the year roars its way round, we are starting to realize not only does it not slow down but drastically speeding up.
This year is definitely keeping us on our toes. As the short break ends we will be making our way out to Colac, followed by Clare and West Wyalong for our August event. Find detailed information in our calendar.
Cheeky push here, join us on facebook In The Bin for frequent calls outs from the road.
Special shout out to Katie Frank, our American.
Your presence will be surely missed around here.
We love you.
Welcoming New Friends and Following Old Ones
Good news! In The Bin has now partnered up with BIFF (Brisbane International Film Festival) and is having great success. Both BIFF and In The Bin share a passion for film culture in Queensland. Since BIFF is known to an audience of more than 375,000, working with BIFF has greatly increased the opportunity of exposure for In The Bin. In The Bin looks forward to working with such a capable, professional and useful company.
Additionally, In The Bin's tourers, Luke and Emma, finished trips to Dubbo, Coonabarabran and Hilston. All tours were very successful with much anticipation for future visits. For the workshops done while touring, each was a three day event. The first day revolves around the students learning about preproduction which involves scripting and storyboarding. On the second day, the students get involved with hands-on filming where they get to create scenes from a script they have put together. Finally, on the third day the students get to edit all of the film. Students get to work with recent editing programs and equipment. All workshops and festivals had positive feedback and great work was produced.
Here is some of the positive feedback In The Bin received from the most recent tours...
"I was just blown away by what was achieved in just three days and it was all done in such a positive (and fun) environment. [Emma and Luke] were professional at all times and had a very good rapport with the students. In turn the kids responded to being given so much creative freedom and responsibility with the equipment etc. I will be speaking to my principal tomorrow and hope that we can book you guys again for next year." --Mary Doolan, Coonabarabran
"You truly have something unique here with ‘In the Bin’ and Mary’s [above] feedback to you is also indicative of how Coonabarabran High School really, really enjoyed the program and received a tremendous amount of inspiration!" --Merry Spencer, Coonabarabran
Luke and Emma's next stop is here in Queensland. We're touring next in Derby, Toowoomba, Townsville, Mt. Isa, Cairns, Longreach, Charters Towers and Rockhampton. Catch us in our upcoming tour locations in Tully, Mackay, or Gladstone during July.
And The Winner Is...

As well as all the film makers that gave us the honor of showing the films, they worked so hard on, at our festival. Especially those films that were premiers at our festival such as "The Foal" which has gone on to be nominated the Cannes Film Festival as wells as Palm Springs, all the best to Jade, Josh and the rest of the crew.
Last but not least we would like to thank everyone that came along to this year's Film Festival. The atmosphere across the events was something electrifying. The participation of the audience in a safe and responsible manner is something we always appreciate at In The Bin.

Academy Award nomination of “Miracle Fish”
We are set for one heck of a tour in 2010, and what a great way to start it, big congrats to Luke Doolan, Drew Bailey and the rest of the crew for their Academy Award nomination of “Miracle Fish”, winner of Best Film at In The Bin in 2009!!! If you haven’t seen it you can check it out as part of our 2010 tour along with some other great films. The Sundance Award Winning Film “El Ataque Los Robots de Nebulosa-5 – Attack of the Robots from Nebula-5”, The Melbourne International Film Festival Hit “Two Men” and the Queensland New Film makers awarded underdog “Broken Road”. This is just a tast of the films that are touring with over 20 films hitting the road there will be a variety to suit any communities needs.
As usual In The Bin programs the very best in the world of short film, mixing high end short films with smart amateur shorts. This is reflective of our past years of screenings where many films have gone on to be nominated and awarded Academy Awards including the likes of “Harvey Krumpet” and “Two Cars One Night”.
Calling for entries for 2010
In The Bin is calling for entries for 2010, it seems like just a few months ago ITB was calling for entries for 2009, right? Well we are back at it and want your films to be part of our 2010 Gold Coast celebrations, and if your film is good enough we will even select it to tour with In The Bin for 2011 where you get paid to tour with us!!! For more information visit here.
What a year we had last year, it blew in one ear and out the other for us. Over 60 locations experience In The Bin, 54 of them we Education Programs, over 1000 students participated, over 200 short films were produced, and the van traveled over 70,000km. So over all I think it was a success… We had a great finale event in Goulburn this year after three local workshops there we screened 11 short films that were made during the Education Program along with a great mix of family films from In The Bin. From Carnarvon WA to Weipa QLD the response from all communities was great and the program was extremely well received.
Of course one of the favorite films of the tour was “Spider” from Nash Edgerton who has gone on to direct the excellent Australian feature “The Square”. Other enjoyed films in 2009’s tour were “Porque Hay Cosas Que Nunca – Because There are Things We Never Forget”, “Dugong” and the continuing success of Cameron Edser with “Animal Instinct” The entire Touring Program though has been a huge success for 2009 and with our program ready for 2010’s tour re are really excited to see the developments.
2010 Touring Program is now online. Check it out here, there are some great films in store for Australia this year including this year’s Academy Award nominated thriller “Miracle Fish” , The Sundance Award Winning Film “El Ataque Los Robots de Nebulosa-5 – Attack of the Robots from Nebula-5”, The Melbourne International Film Festival Hit “Two Men” and the Queensland New Film makers awarded underdog “Broken Road”. This is just a tast of the films that are touring with over 20 films hitting the road there will be a variety to suit any communities needs.
In The Bin kicks off a big project in Longreach
WA Tour a Great Success
Jed just arrived back from WA after a few weeks packed with workshops including Youth at Risk at SMYL, Rockingham Retirement Village and Malibu Special School in Rockingham, other locations in Western Australia included Mt Barker, and Lake Grace wich were all great events. Each workshop was a huge success thanks to the great turnout and variety of students. The festival this past week showcased the student films as well as professional short films and also drew a large audience of community members and supporters of the education workshop students. It was a busy three weeks but we have a lot to show for it and look forward to being back in WA for next year's tour.
The anticipation has been growing about film selections for the September festival so next week the decisions will be made. hundreds of great film entries have been received but only the absolute best can make it to the main event. After selections has been made, 14 lucky filmmakers will be notified that their film has made the cut.
Also next week, In The Bin will be travelling to Mackay to be a part of Mackay Region Festival of Arts from Wednesday 13 July to Friday 15 July at 7 pm each night and at three different locations. On 13 July the film festival will take place at Pinnacle Cricket Ground, 14 July it will be at Eimeo School Oval and on 15 July there will be a special silent film festival showing at Bluewater Quay.
