The 26th annual Alliance Française French Film Festival will allow amateur film makers to participate in their Short Film Competition for the first time.

The Alliance Française French Film Festival gives Australians the opportunity to experience the celebrated culture of French cinema. The festival runs for eight weeks and tours through seven cities. It is a vastly successful event, with 46 films screened more than 1500 times across the nation.

Filmmakers wanting to enter the short film competition must adhere to the guidelines: films must have a running time between 30 and 60 seconds and have the theme of ‘Motion and Emotion – itself a salute to festival partner Peugeot. Of course, these ideas must have a French feel to it. This can come in the form of the French language, photography from or of the region or French concepts in general.

Films will be  judged on how well the theme of ‘Motion and Emotion’ tied in with French culture is expressed in terms of innovation, creativity, style, and quality.

The first prize for the Short Film Competition is a return economy flight to France with three nights accommodation. First prize winner will also have the opportunity for their film to be screened during the French Film Festival!

So get those cameras rolling – the competition deadline is Friday January 16 at 5.00pm.

You can find more information about the competition at their official website.

About

Meld Magazine was incorporated as an independent not-for-profit media outlet in September 2008 to reach out to international students in Melbourne, and provide students the opportunity to gain real work experience.

Many international students live in or around the city because of the proximity to their colleges and universities, and that was where we decided to focus our efforts first. Many of us live, work and study locally too. Our editorial team is made of both local and international students, and it has worked to our advantage in providing local content in every sense of the word.
