The Revelation Perth International Film Festival will again partner with the City of Vincent for the 2019 City of Vincent Film Project.

The City of Vincent has allocated a total of $15,000 to fund three short documentaries, providing a great opportunity for filmmakers, with each winning film receiving a $5,000 budget to tell their story.

Revelation Film Festival Director Richard Sowada said the project was a fantastic community-based creative initiative.

“We’re proud to be again associated with the commissioning of new work from new filmmakers.”

“The quality of work produced in the 2018 competition was sensational by anyone’s standard with the films being accepted into the film festival screening circuit since our premiere”.

Films from last year’s event were an eclectic mix of styles and themes; Quality Time, a poetic exploration into the art of neon bending; Ghosts of Vincent, an expository ghost hunt and The Beeman, an observational look at one man’s crusade to save the honeybees.

Project coordinator Ashleigh Nicolau says the competition is a terrific stepping stone for emerging filmmakers to showcase their talents and add to their portfolios.

“Cody Greenwood, Producer of The Beeman, was chosen to participate in the 2018 Screen Producer Australia “Ones To Watch” program.”

The City of Vincent Film Project is now calling for submissions, with a closing date of 30 November.

Submissions will be considered by a panel of industry professionals, and representatives of the City of Vincent and the Revelation Perth International Film Festival.

Successful applicants will be expected to commence production in January, and the three completed films will screen as part of the 2019 Revelation Perth International Film Festival in July.

In an added bonus for filmmakers, their works will be available to international audiences through REVonDEMAND – Revelation’s own on-demand platform.
