Opportunity for young people to showcase why they love where they live

Young filmmakers are invited to flex their creative muscles over the school holidays, exploring the theme ‘Why I Love Where I Live’.

16 September 2021

The Alpine Filmmaking Competition encourages school-aged Alpine Shire residents to create a 90-second short film showcasing the theme for the chance to win some great prizes.

Alpine Shire Council Acting Manager Community Development Jenny Corser said the theme creates lots of possibilities for great filmmaking.

“We all have reasons for loving where we live,” she said.

“It might be our unique townships, our incredible natural environment, our proximity to the snow or our tight-knit, supportive communities.

“It might be closer to home - our families, our backyards, our friends or our pets.

“We want to know what our young people think about living here, and what’s important to them.”

The winner of the competition will have their entry screened at the Christmas Twilight Cinema events across the Shire later this year.

“We know we have some amazing young people who are really creative and keen to learn new things,” she said.

“You might be a filmmaking pro, or barely picked up a camera before - we still want you to have a go.

“This is a great way to have some fun, learn something new and express yourself.”

The competition is open to all school-aged children and teens who live in the Alpine Shire.

Entries must be filmed predominantly on a phone camera and submitted by Monday, 15 November 2021.
