Essence of Tasmania 2013

By February 19, 2013 Entries

Tourism Tasmania is pleased to be associated with the second season of the ‘Essence of Tasmania’ Short Film Competition. Building on last year where remarkably [in its first year] over twenty entries were submitted, film makers, professional and amateur, are invited to submit a film story of up to three minutes duration which interprets Tasmania in new and different ways. Last year’s judging panel were enticed by three minute stories in the form of drama, documentary, comedy, animation and other creative ways of expressing what is the essence of Tasmania. Filmmakers are encouraged to capture the essence of Tasmania in the form of a story rather than a travelogue of images. Entry is open worldwide.

Tourism Tasmania will contribute a prize pool of $20,000, with up to four winners receiving $5000 for their Essence of Tasmania short film. The films are intended to join Tourism Tasmania’s promotional and Social Media suite and be exposed within the BOFA framework of events. There will be a formal judging panel and a public vote for this year.
