Final call for Cinema Nouveau Short Film Project entries


Submissions for The Short Film Project, an initiative by Ster-Kinekor’s Cinema
Nouveau in partnership with digital media content specialists Spectrum and
cinematic experience company ShortandSweet, close on Friday, 24 October.
However, extensions may be granted to participants who have a short film which
isn’t finished yet, that they would like to enter.

The Short Film Project offers filmmakers, both established and emerging, the
opportunity to produce and enter a short film of ten minutes. After entries are
evaluated by a panel of judges, a short list of finalists is selected to appear on the
big screen before feature films, from 14 November to 14 December. Thereafter, a
final selection, which is announced on 2 February 2015, appears during Cinema
Nouveau Oscar weekend, where it will screen to large cinema audiences.

The overall winning director receives R20 000 worth of Sony camera equipment and
a screening at the 2015 Durban International Film Festival. The winner of the
Audience Choice Award also wins a screening of his or her film at 2015 Durban
International Film Festival.
