The finalist short films were screened and the winners announced at the historic Cockatoo Island, Sydney Harbour on Wednesday 6 November. The winning films will be showcased by MobileMuster and Planet Ark during National Recycling Week (11-17 November 2019) to encourage the community to recycle.

Spyro Kalos, Manager MobileMuster said the film competition was a wonderful example of students creativity, storytelling and taking the lead in environmental action and encouraging their community to reuse and recycle.

“Through film these students and schools are inspiring our community to think about why we are holding onto our old mobile phones and looking at the environmental benefits of them being reused or recycled,” Spyro said.

MobileMuster received over 90 entries from across the country, with just over 1000 students involved. The finalists were selected by an expert panel bringing together experience in film, education and environmental excellence. The films have been judged on their relevancy to the theme, creativity, technical skills and ability to convey the environmental message.
