WIFT NZ is pleased to be aligned with The Outlook for Someday and the important work that the project does in supporting emerging young film-makers.
We are delighted that our involvement with the project in 2012 is enabling the new WIFT Young Woman Film-maker Award.
The Outlook for Someday challenge is to make a short sustainability-related film. It can be any genre, filmed with any camera and any length up to 5 minutes.
Anyone up to age 24 can enter, either individually or in a team.
Entrants are encouraged to interpret ‘sustainability’ in the way that makes sense to them.
The 2012 entry deadline is 21 September.
Winning films from the 2012 film challenge will be featured by U Live (TVNZ U), The Erin Simpson Show (TV2), What Now (TV2), I AM TV (TV2) and Tagata Pasifika (TV One).
Each of the 20 winning film-makers or teams will receive a prize package worth over $1000. There is also $8000 worth of Unitec courses or film production going to the director of the film chosen as The Body Shop Standout Winner.
In 2011 there were a record 153 entries involving over 600 young people aged 6 to 24 years old from all over New Zealand.
20 Winning Films are chosen each year by judges from media, education, government and business. They are celebrated at The Someday Awards red-carpet ceremony in Auckland, where Special Awards are announced. There is also an online popular vote for Audience Favourite.
