Ci­nes­naps com­pe­ti­tion starts soon

South Western Times - - News -

SOUTH West high school stu­dents with a flair for film­mak­ing are en­cour­aged to start think­ing about en­ter­ing the fifth Ci­nes­naps short film com­pe­ti­tion.

Stu­dents aged 15 to 18 years old can work in­di­vid­u­ally or in teams of up to six to pro­duce a three-tofive-minute short film cen­tred on the 2018 theme “mir­rors”.

Ci­nes­naps is part of the Cine­festOZ Com­mu­nity Schools Pro­gram, which in­cludes fes­ti­val in­cur­sions such as film­maker Q&As and film­mak­ing mas­ter classes with in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als.

The com­pe­ti­tion will cul­mi­nate with the judg­ing of fi­nal­ists by Aus­tralian film in­dus­try heavy­weights in front of more than 200 guests at a youth red car­pet screen­ing dur­ing the Cine­festOZ Fes­ti­val from Au­gust 22 to 16, 2018.

Bun­bury Cathe­dral Gram­mar stu­dent James Forster won the cov­eted Ci­nes­naps tro­phy at his third at­tempt in 2017 for his film Salt Wa­ter and en­cour­aged bud­ding film­mak­ers to get in­volved.

“The fes­ti­val ran many work­shops and these were a great op­por­tu­nity to see how many of the tech­niques I had learnt to a ba­sic level would work in the pro­fes­sional en­vi­ron­ment,” he said.

En­tries will open on De­cem­ber 1, with en­try packs avail­able from­nes­
