After the enormous success of the Life in Pictures Short Film Comp in 2017 it’s back for another year. If the enthusiasm and quality of last year is anything to go by, we can hardly wait to get these new works on the big screen.
Life in Pictures is a unique collaboration between state government and the arts and the community. It’s centred on stimulating discussion about ageing, celebrating achievements of those who are ageing and exploring different perspectives 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. Likewise the contribution people who are now seniors make and have made in building the communities we inhabit globally and locally are not always acknowledged.
This film competition asked filmmakers to develop and shoot a film of up to two minutes looking at perspectives on ageing and is designed to raise and enhance awareness of the rewards and challenges of ageing.
Join us for a special screening of the short films and presentation of awards. There is more than $20,000 in cash and prizes for the lucky winners in the following categories;
