City of Vincent Film Project 2024
Applications Now Open
The Revelation Perth International Film Festival is excited to announce the continuation of its seventh commissioning collaboration with the City of Vincent via the City of Vincent Film Project.
The only project of its kind in Australia, the City of Vincent Film Project provides funding to three local filmmakers to produce a non-fiction short (10-min or less) shining a light on stories from within the municipality.
The successful filmmakers receive a total of $8,000 – consisting of $7,000 cash and $1,000 in-kind from Perth’s premier camera equipment rental company Raz Rentals. They are mentored through the process from start to finish, with this unique collaboration providing the opportunity to learn all aspects of producing a film including the technical requirements, storytelling fundamentals, post-production techniques as well as marketing and communication strategies.
“The City of Vincent Film Project has been a huge success over the years, with many films being recognised on the international stage,” said City of Vincent Mayor Emma Cole.
“Each year, we see incredible short films that tell inspiring stories about local people and places in Vincent.
“This is the perfect opportunity for aspiring filmmakers to bring their projects to life.”
Applications will open from 23 October and can be made via the City of Vincent website. Applications close 30 November 2023 with the finalists announced on 14 December 2023.
The successful films will screen at a special gala during the annual Revelation Perth International Film Festival in July.
Revelation is supported by the Australian and Western Australian governments through Screenwest, Lotterywest, Screen Australia and the City of Vincent.
