The Out­look for Some­day sus­tain­abil­ity film pro­ject is call­ing for en­tries to its 2013 film chal­lenge from young Ki­wis un­der the age of 25. In­ter­pre­ta­tions of ‘sus­tain­abil­ity’ are the di­rec­tors’ own, and films can be of any genre and up to five min­utes in length.

With a Septem­ber 13 dead­line, 20 win­ning films will be cel­e­brated at The Some­day Awards’ red-car­pet cer­e­mony in Auck­land at the end of the year.

El­e­ment mag­a­zine will host an on­line vote for the El­e­ment Au­di­ence Favourite. One film will be cho­sen as The Body Shop Stand­out Win­ner, and its di­rec­tor will re­ceive Unitec cour­ses or film pro­duc­tion fa­cil­i­ties to the value of $8000.

Last year’s win­ner, Arbo­ra­ceous (pic­tured) made by 16-yearold Natasha Bishop, has since achieved in­ter­na­tional recog­ni­tion, com­pet­ing in the Ja­pan Wildlife Film Fes­ti­val (JWFF) along­side films made by the BBC and Ja­panese Broad­cast­ing Cor­po­ra­tion.
