New short film competition


Heads-up, Aussie filmmakers, you’re gonna wanna pay attention to this. Content marketing agency Edge is on the hunt for talented film makers with a new short film competition called ‘The New Wave’, which intends to assist young talent in getting their foot in the door.

Open until 29 October, the competition calls for budding filmmakers and creatives, aged between 18 and 25, to submit a short film centred on the theme of ‘Play’. First prize is a six-month paid internship with Edge plus $3,000 cash. Kerching!

Edge’s creative director Matt Sterne told us: “We want to help grow the next wave of film creatives. There’s no substitute for experience, which is why we’re offering a paid internship as the first prize. Being able to learn from some of the leading minds in the content marketing space is a great opportunity for any young creative.”

Along with Sterne, the judges for the competition include industry personalities like Tropfest finalist and advertising creative, Kevin Lim; production and development expert who has recently developed and produced a comedy and drama for FOXTEL, Emma Moroney; as well as film reviewer and voice of the movies on Sydney radio station, FBi, Sam Clark.
