In partnership with the City of Vincent, Revelation Film Festival is running the City of Vincent Film Project to create a series of short documentaries made in and about the City of Vincent.
The project looks for stories in and about Vincent! The City has a wealth of subject matter – local characters, urban legends, extraordinary community groups doing amazing things, local history, businesses that serve the community in special ways plus facilities and parks that hold special meanings to our community.
Projects must be in the documentary 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. Up to three projects will be selected for funding. Support consists of a cash component of $7,000 plus a documentary master class, mentoring during the development, production and post-production phases. All projects must be shot in the City of Vincent.
The successful films will screen at a special gala during the annual Revelation Perth International Film Festival taking place in July at Luna Palace Cinemas Leederville.
The 2023 City of Vincent Film Project titles are as follows:
- ‘Care To Dance’ from producer Matthew Adams and director Mason Fleming, we follow a group of City of Vincent seniors as they rediscover the joy of dancing in the golden years of their lives.
- ‘What We Do For Family’ from producer Leslie Hornung and director Jennifer “JP” Piper, this performative/observational hybrid documentary will explore the process and lengths to which queer people must go in order to create a nuclear family.
- ‘Home Not A House’ from director and producer Alicia Keenan and Carter Kirkland, delves into the housing crisis and its impact on young people trying to survive in the City of Vincent.
- We’re also thrilled to add that we will be working on a fourth production, The Private Life of a War Memorial, about a local landmark with an inspirational story. Anne Chapple, granddaughter of Private Porter and the last living guardian of the memory of ANZAC Cottage reveals the secrets and stories of three generations of women, taking us on a journey through the joys, oddities, troubles and responsibilities of growing up inside a war memorial. This will be produced by Susie Conte, Dawn Farnham and Jenny Crabb.
