What is ageing? Does it mean ‘getting old’? Is it ‘getting older’? Or is it simply ‘growing’?
The Life in Pictures filmmaking competition is a unique collaboration between government, the arts and the community that's centered on stimulating discussion about ageing, celebrating achievements of those who are ageing and diving into cultures each who have a different perspective on what it is to age.
Relevance in the workforce, finances, living in a cashless society, sex and sexuality, relationships to family and community, housing, health care, vulnerability to elder abuse and myriad other forces come into play. Like-wise the contribution people who are now seniors make and have made in building the communities we inhabit globally and locally are not always acknowledged or recognised. Their stories of triumph, achievement and of course struggle are forces that surround them and inform us.
This film competition asked filmmakers to develop and shoot a film up to 2-minutes looking at perspectives on ageing in the community and is designed to raise and enhance awareness of the rewards and challenges of ageing.
There are three entry categories each with a tailored prize pool worth around $6,000 in each section:
Join us for a special screening and gala presentation of films from each of these categories as we give out more than $20,000 in cash and prizes for the lucky winners!
Life in Pictures is a unique collaboration between the Revelation Film Festival, the Department of Local Government & Communities and ScreenWest.
