Lo­cal film­mak­ers a rev­e­la­tion

Guardian Express - - FRONT PAGE -

YOUNG film­mak­ers will have a chance to have their first doc­u­men-tary funded through the 2017 City of Vin­cent Film Project.

The City of Vin­cent and Rev­ela-tion Perth In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val have teamed up to pro­vide film­mak-ers with $15,000 to fund three short doc­u­men­taries.

Ash­leigh Ni­co­lau’s idea two years ago was to break a world record for the most num­ber of peo-ple named Vin-cent gath­ered in Vin­cent; she now co-or­di­nates this pro-ject.

Ms Ni­co­lau said sub­mis­sions var­ied each year, with past win­ners in­clud­ing doc­u­men­taries about skate­board­ing, a lo­cal restau­rant and an artist.

“This is a great start for a film-maker’s port­fo­lio,” she said.

Sub­mis­sions close on Novem-ber 1. Com­pe­ti­tion de­tails and guide­lines are at www.rev­e­la­tion-film­fest.org/city-of-vin­cent-film-project.
