CALL FOR ENTRIES TO CAUSE FILM FESTIVAL’S 5TH ANNIVERSARY FESTIVAL!
Cause Film Festival is calling for submissions to their prestigious film festival!
Now 5 years old, this year will be a very special event at the Riverside Theatre Parrammatta as Cause Film Festival will be celebrating with a special 5th birthday celebration after party.
Known as the “festival with heart” Cause Film Festival is now a firm favourite on the Sydney film festival circuit, especially for those who want their films to make a difference in the world. One of the main incentives is that all profits go to the charity or cause of the winning film.
Festival Director Suki Foster says, “The main aim of Cause Film Festival is to provide filmmakers and anyone who wants to make a difference in the world a platform to get their message out there to a wide audience. Everyone loves a good film and people really respond to a call to action if they’re enjoying the experience of entertainment while learning about a cause.”
Awards include Best Film, Runner Up and 2nd Runner Up, Best Australia and Best NZ film, Most Uplifting film and People’s Choice Award, and the prestigious Star Central Award for Best Actor which offers the winner a double page spread in Star Central magazine.
All films submitted to the festival will be judged by industry experts such as Maha Wilson, Julie Kalceff, Brad McMurray, Alison Daddo, Eddie Arya and Khan Chittenden to mention only a few.
“It’s a fantastic way to get your work seen by industry heavyweights and to win some great prizes to help you along your filmmaking journey” says Suki Foster.
Cause Film Festival receives a range of entrants from seasoned filmmakers to novices who are passionate about getting the word out about a cause close to their hearts. This is an incredible opportunity for everyone to get involved in film making and raising awareness.
The criteria is a time limit of 12 minutes, the films must support a charity, cause or have a strong positive message and not contain any defamatory or obscene material. Full details of entry criteria are on the website.
