Fighting ageism with film
A short film competition which aims to challenge attitudes towards ageing was launched this week.
The Life in Pictures short film competition is a collaboration between the Department of Local Government and Communities (DLGC), Revelation Perth International Film Festival and Screenwest.
Life in Pictures will encourage people – the film makers and the viewers – to stop and think about how society views growing older while aiming to stimulate discussion about ageing in a positive way.
Entries should challenge perceptions of ageing and consider how seniors add value to our communities. This includes their contribution to families, culture, the economy, volunteering and tourism.
Entries will be received in three categories, with prizes tailored to suit each category.
- Students and schools: aged up to 17 years and schools
- Open: aged 18 – 59 years
- Seniors: aged 60 years and over.
Finalists will have their films screened at a special event during the Revelation Perth International Film Festival.
Entries open on 28 February and close on 31 May 2017.
