WE WANT YOUR STORIES!

Applications close Friday 1 November 2019

The Revelation Perth International Film Festival continue their partnership with the City of Vincent for the 2019/20 City of Vincent Film Project. The initiative provides filmmakers funding and support for the production of three short documentaries. Totalling $15,000 annually, each documentary receives $5,000 to showcase stories in and about the City Of Vincent. The 2018/19 City of Vincent Films premiered at GET YOUR SHORTS ON during Revelation Perth International film festival at Luna Leederville in July 2019. 

The project aims to represent Vincent, its residents and their stories, as well as provide emerging filmmakers with an opportunity to showcase their film making talents. We're looking for local stories, characters and urban legends in Vincent. 

All projects should not exceed 10 minutes in length and be suitable for a general audience. We are looking for factual documentaries about people, places, events, history, personal stories and local characters in the City of Vincent. 

Guidelines and Application Form


2018/19 Recipients 

The Throwback

If video killed the radio star, then surely Netflix has killed the DVD store. So how can one tenacious woman keep her doors open long enough to be the last DVD store in the city? Produced by Jenny Crabb (Parkerville Amphitheatre: Sets, Bugs and Rock n Roll) and Directed by Louise Bertoncini (Chatterbox with Pete Gleeson - on finding the story).

One Girl's Fire

AFL is our national sport, it has brought communities together for over 100 years. Today, Women’s AFL is growing at a rapid rate and it’s not going to stop anytime soon. One teenage girl is right in the centre of that growth and she has her eyes on the prize. This film will follow Jasmin Stewart as she chases her dream of making it into the Women’s AFL to play at the top level. Produced by Gabby Ho and directed by Jake Blackburn (The Man & His Island).

Persia's Pantry

Persia’s Pantry follows the incredible life journey of Arad Niksefat, a man forced to flee from his own country, only to face a much harsher and demoralising life as an asylum seeker in Australia. Produced by Daniel Njegich (Men of the Shipyard) and directed by Daniel Pitcher (Broken Wings).
