Three exciting opportunities exist for young digital creatives and performers to be part of the 2019 REELise Film Festival and have their work showcased in VMAX at Event Cinemas Bondi Junction.
The REELise Film Festival supports and celebrates pocket filmmaking and other forms of digital expression by young people about navigating life in a digital world. It screens youth created content annually at a livestreamed red carpet event aimed at inspiring and empowering young digital leaders and content creators to broaden awareness about the risks and opportunities of life online. The Festival provides a chance for young people to acquire new skills and develop confidence in their unique voice while becoming part of a supportive network to drive a positive digital culture among their peers.
Entries are now invited in three REELise competitions. Finalists in each will have their work showcased online and at the 2019 REELise Film Festival; and be treated to a VIP red carpet experience.
- The REELISE FILM FESTIVAL POCKET FILM COMPETITION is for students 10 to 18 years. Your 5 minute (or less) film must be created on a smartphone or iPad and address our competition theme "seen". Prizes are awarded for Best Film in Junior, Intermediate and Senior catoegories as well as for People's Choice, Spirit of REELise (teamwork and courage) and RBC Touch of Pink (best film exploring bullying and discrimation affecting the LGBTQI community).
