APPLICATIONS have opened for the fifth instalment of the City of Vincent Film Project.
The three film-makers who make it through the assessment will get $7,000 and a mentor to help them produce a quick non-fiction film about Vincent.
The successful films will screen during the 25th Revelation Perth International Film Festival in July next year.
“We have a wealth of local talent and so many interesting stories in our community,” Vincent mayor Emma Cole said.
“Past participants in the film project have gone on to win international accolades including the recent documentary Pacing the Pool, which won best short documentary this year at a festival in Wisconsin.”
Directed by Radheya Jegatheva, the inspiring piece follows Richard Pace who for the past 30 years has woken up at 3.45am every day to enjoy his ritual swim at the Beatty Park Leisure Centre at 5.30am.
Diagnosed with a rare bone disease at the age of four4, the heart-warming documentary follows his incredible journey of resilience and courage.
Film-makers’ applications can be lodged at www. vincent.wa.gov.au/filmproject by November 15.
