ENTRIES OPEN for sustainability film makers
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.
