2021 Recipients Announced 

 We're sorry to say our 2021 City of Vincent film project submissions are now closed. We've had a great response and some of our previously commissioned works are still being selected for festival programs and are winning awards around the world.
Back for its fourth year, this fantastic production initiative commissions 3 short non-fiction films that intersects with or orbits around the City of Vincent - and this year the production funding has been raised to $7,000 per project. 
The 2021 recipients are:

Pacing the Pool
Dir: Radheya Jegatheva

For the Last 30 years, Richard Pace has started each morning swimming laps at Beatty Park.

We Had Mail
Dir: Jen Jamieson
An ode to the humble and not so humble letterboxes found in the suburbs of Vincent.

There is no Stopping Us
Dir: Mel Branson
Broadcasting 24/7, but what happens when a radio station that is always on air goes into lockdown? Radio Silence?

The three selected works will screen at a special Gala screening at the 2021 Revelation Perth International Film Festival and all teams will be mentored throughout the entire process to produce the best quality work possible. 
Projects are non-fiction genre, but can be comedic, dramatic or animated. Films must be between 5 and 10 minutes in length including credits and suitable for screening at all age events.

The aims of the Film Project are to:

  • Produce three non-fiction works which will be screened at the 2021 Revelation Film Festival
  • Provide the City of Vincent with an ongoing record of the City, its residents and their stories
  • Provide early career filmmakers with the opportunity to make a short non-fiction work that demonstrates their filmmaking talents and provides a useful step into the screen industry
Previously produced works are still circulating the film festival scene and the 2020 event screened to a full house at Luna in Leederville, so if you're a budding filmmaker or team of creatives, you've simply got nothing to lose!
The successful 2020 projects were:

Since 2011, The Spirit of the Streets Choir has provided an environment where people from all walks of life and all social backgrounds can come together in​ song and friendship. Based at the St Albans Church Hall in Highgate, the choir​ provides an opportunity for people who experience social exclusion or​ disadvantage to participate as active members of a performing choir in a safe,​ welcoming and non-judgmental environment. This documentary will tell the​ story of the choir as they regroup after their Christmas break and prepare for​ their first big gig of the year.

The fires that have devastated Australia have left behind countless injured and orphaned animals.  This story is about rescued kangaroo joeys and their adoption by human carers.  Presenting this documentary is City of Vincent resident, Alex Cearns, OAM, a world-renowned animal photographer and advocate for rescued Australian animals. We follow Alex as she leads us into the quirky world of kangaroo care and discover the astonishing and heartwarming stories behind Raising Joey.

Giving the provocation “if these walls could talk…” to various owners and inhabitants of unique, architecturally interesting or palpably intimate buildings, These Walls is a short poetic​ documentary that will bring these stores and their essence to life through dance and​ sound design.​ Dancers of different forms and ages respond to the stories and architecture inside the homes within the City of Vincent.

These Walls uses performers from different dance backgrounds (a contemporary dancer,​ Indian Classical Bharatanatyam dancer and a young ballet dancer) who will​ respond to both the stories from the owners and the architectural space and unique objects​ that exist in the space. The work will feel nostalgic and familiar, and bring a new perspective​ onto the buildings that may go unnoticed in our everyday experience in the City of Vincent. We​ hope these stories will get audiences to think about their own relationship to home.
