Chal­lenge goes out to direc­tors

Central Leader - - News -

The search has be­gun for the coun­try’s next wave of film-mak­ing tal­ent.

En­tries for the Youth­town Short Film Chal­lenge are now open to 13 to 18-yearolds who fancy them­selves as the next Peter Jack­son.

The com­pe­ti­tion has steadily grown over the last six years from an Auck­land-wide search to a na­tion­wide con­test.

En­tries should be be­tween four to 10 min­utes long and will be judged by a panel of film in­dus­try ex­perts.

Win­ners of the best film cat­e­gory will re­ceive $2000 worth of Har­vey Nor­man vouch­ers and best di­rec­tor wins free en­try into the re­spected Tele­vi­sion Pro­duc­tion Course at South­seas Film, Tele­vi­sion and An­i­ma­tion School.

En­tries cost $25 each and close on July 24.

More in­for­ma­tion and en­try forms are avail­able at www. youth­town.org.nz or by phon­ing Dionne at Youth­town on 3795430.
