The WA Screen Awards (WASAs) is the premier celebration of West Australian screen culture, celebrating excellence and achievements in feature film, short film, web series, music videos, television production, documentary and games.
The 2014 red carpet gala awards ceremony will be held on Monday 14 July 2014 at a soon-to be announced, glamourous new venue and the event will feature VIP guests, world-class service, delicious canapés, premium beverages and live entertainment.
Over 500 film industry leaders, Western Australian screen practitioners, media, sponsors and government officials are anticipated to attend.
Former WASA winners include some of Australia’s most prominent screen artists including Nelson Woss ('Red Dog') as well as outstanding young talent including actress Olivia DeJonge, who recently secured her debut lead role in the yet-to-be announced M.Night Shyamalan Hollywood feature film.
The 2013 WASAs were held in conjunction with the Revelation Film Festival and Cinefest Oz and attracted a record 800 entries from more than 100 nominees across 66 screen projects.
“The 26th WA Screen Awards will take everything that was great about the awards in 2013, and make it better. FTI aims to present WA's biggest celebration yet of the amazing community of screen story tellers that we have here in Western Australia. We look forward to seeing our nominees and winners go onto bigger and better things, as they do every year. Good luck to all of the entrants!" said CEO of FTI, Paul Bodlovich.
FTI enhances the vibrancy of the WA Screen Sector though the provision of screen events, training, industry opportunities as well as production development and support. The WASAs aim to connect audiences with WA screen content and WA screen artists with each other. FTI encourages all Western Australian screen practitioners to enter their projects by 30 April 2014 for their chance to be recognised at the WASA 2014 Gala Awards Ceremony on Monday 14 July 2014.
The 26th annual WASAs are proudly supported by major partner ScreenWest and presented in conjunction with the Revelation Perth International Film Festival.
