Revelation Perth International Film Festival is proud to announce its third commissioning collaboration with the City of Vincent with the City of Vincent Filmmaking Project.
This unique initiative provides three filmmakers the opportunity to receive $5,000 in production funds to produce a non-fiction film of 10-minutes or under that intersects in one way or another with the City of Vincent. That’s as simple as it gets.
There’s a total of $15,000 on offer and filmmakers will be guided and mentored through the process from start to finish by Revelation’s Ashleigh Nicolau, providing a unique opportunity for filmmakers to learn all aspects of producing a film from technical requirements, storytelling fundamentals, post production techniques and marketing and communications strategies. The successful films will screen at a special gala during the 2020 Revelation Perth International Film Festival.
“We’re continually blown away by the high quality of all the works produced” says Festival Director Richard Sowada.
“These films are the real thing and their ability to circulate the international film festival scene in their own right is testament to the talent and the strength of the initiative.”
Filmmakers over the last two years have given the project a red-hot crack, producing works that are screening at film festivals around the country and learning the craft in a professional and collaborative context.
“Revelation is one of the few international film festivals in Australia, and certainly in WA, that support film production in such a direct and positive way through actually commissioning work” adds Sowada.
“It’s utterly unique and feeds directly into a positive and creative community and industry – that makes us very proud. We don’t just show great movies – we’re helping make them!”
Submissions open 23 August and close 1 November 2019.
