Victorian Multicultural Commission (VMC) is now inviting film makers to submit their work as part of the The VMC Film Festival
Films can be documentary-style or tell a fictional narrative. Films which were originally created for another competition or purpose are also accepted.
Shortlisted entries will light up the big screen at ACMI on Thursday 24 May.
My generation: stories of everyday multiculturalism
In an age when identity, race, faith and immigration politics dominate global headlines, we ask filmmakers , young and old: how has multiculturalism shaped our society in Victoria?
At this critical juncture of history, what role do we want multiculturalism to play in our state’s future identity? And how do we get there?
Filmmakers are invited to use creative and original storytelling to enact powerful solutions to the questions of our time.
My generation: stories of everyday multiculturalism challenges us to look no further than the community around us, for the answers may be closer than we think.
Entries are welcome from anyone living in Victoria. Whether you are an established or aspiring filmmaker, or just have a powerful story to share, we invite you to submit short films of three to 12 minutes.
Submissions will be judged in two categories – under 25s and over 25s – and there will be great prizes .
The VMC is seeking narratives told by or about Victorians from all cultural backgrounds, and supports the work of emerging filmmakers from multicultural communities across Victoria.
Shortlisted films will be screened at the VMC Film Festival at ACMI at 7.30pm on Thursday, 24 May, 2018.
Entries close Tuesday 24 April at 11:59pm. Visit culturaldiversityweek.vic.gov.
