THREE filmmaking teams are celebrating after landing $5000 from Vincent council to make short documentaries about the city.

This year there was a record number of submissions to the council’s film project, which is run in conjunction with the Revelation film festival.

Winners included Gabby Ho and Jake Blackburn, who pitched Kick Like a Girl. It’s about the growth of womens AFL and Jasmin Stewart chasing her dream to play at the top level.

Daniel Njegich and Daniel Pitcher are making Persia’s Pantry, following the journey of writer Arad Niksefat who fled his homeland as an asylum seeker, only to languish in a detention centre.

Jenny Crabb and Louise Bertoncini’s The Last is about a little DVD store holding out in the Netflix era.

The films will premiere at Revelation Perth International Film Festival in July.
