Life in Pictures to highlight the positives of growing older

Revelation Perth International Film Festival launches their Life in Pictures short film competition, inviting people to make short films that challenge the perception of ageing.

Filmmakers have until 18 May 2018 to submit films, which will then be screened on 9 July, as part of the Revelation Perth International Film Festival.

There are three categories for entries with a prize pool of $20,000, which will include opportunities to attend film industry events, short courses and training.

“The Life in Pictures short film competition provides an excellent opportunity to put the spotlight on the lives of older Western Australians, in positive and creative ways,” said Seniors and Ageing Minister Mick Murray.

As part of the competition, free community workshops will be run to support entrants to develop and submit their films.

Endorsed by the International Federation on Ageing, Life in Pictures is an program that encourages a community conversation about ageing.
