'Essence of Tasmania' Short Film Competition opens
'Essence of Tasmania' Short Film Competition opens in conjunction with The Tasmanian Breath of Fresh Air Film Festival
WHEN: 14/04/2013 to 31/05/2013
In conjunction with BOFA (The Tasmanian Breath of Fresh Air Film Festival), Tourism Tasmania is pleased to be associated with the second season of the ‘Essence of Tasmania’ Short Film Competition.
Building on last year where remarkably (in its first year) over twenty entries were submitted, film makers – professional and amateur – are invited to submit a film story of up to three minutes duration which interprets Tasmania in new and different ways.
Last year’s judging panel were enticed by three minute stories in the form of drama, documentary, comedy, animation and other creative ways of expressing what is the essence of Tasmania. Filmmakers are encouraged to capture the essence of Tasmania in the form of a story rather than a travelogue of images. Entry is open worldwide. 2012 winners can be viewed at http://campaigns.discovertasmania.com/national/bofa2012
Tourism Tasmania will contribute a prize pool of $20,000, with up to four winners receiving $5000 for their Essence of Tasmania short film.
The films are intended to join Tourism Tasmania’s promotional and Social Media suite and be exposed within the BOFA framework of events.
There will be a formal judging panel and a public vote for this year. Let’s hope that the results coincide!
The competition will open on 14 February 2013 and will close on COB 31 May 2013. Judging will be held during June and those chosen by the judges as winners will be notified by COB Monday 24th June.
The People's Choice vote will be open on the BOFA Facebook site from midnight Friday 21st June. The winners selected by the People's Choice and by the judges will be announced on July 15th 2013.
