Cinema Nova launches $10k movie edit competition

Cinema Nova is reviving preshow entertainment with a competition that encourages local talent to submit short videos for $10k cash.

Entries are now open for a one-of-a-kind competition for Melbourne movie lovers, who must make a creative edit reel that might play before a Cinema Nova film showing for a chance at $1000. There are ten cash prizes up for grabs.

Nova stipulates that the video you submit might include something you’ve filmed or recorded yourself, or it might be a clever edit of (or commentary on) other material. We presume clips of popular films would be okay to use under their exhibition license.
