R50 000 and global recognition up for grabs to budding creative students

The prestigious Bokeh South African International Lifestyle and Fashion Film Festival is offering the chance for aspirant creative talents to win a whopping R50 000 through their Emerging Creative Talent competition.

Year on year this unique festival has grown in stature, recognition and initiatives, with an increasing emphasis on enabling young local creatives through fringe events such as workshops, mentoring programmes and of course recognition and prises through the prestigious awards events and the Emerging Creative Talent competition.

The sixth edition of the festival, in partnership with the Gauteng Film Commission, invites all South African creative students to create a team and submit their short film pitch/treatment to Bokeh FFF by the 7 April 2019, and stand the chance to be one of the 10 lucky teams to be selected to create an award winning fashion film.

Those 10 films will then be screened on a worldwide stage at the upcoming 2019 Bokeh South African International Lifestyle and Fashion Film Festival, with the winning film being awarded the main prize on the night.

The directors will also be given the opportunity to present their films at the festival’s directors’ workshop and viewings in Cape Town.

Says, Bokeh Founder Adrian Lazarus: “We are excited to offer this life changing opportunity to the unbelievable talent that we have in this country and we’re keen to see how they interpret this year’s theme, which is – The City Super Hero.

Film students and new creative graduates who would like to enter will need to select a creative collaborative dream team in the following disciplines; fashion, film/video, copy writing, make up, hair-styling, editing and special effects, production, acting and modelling.

The top 10 teams will be announced on the 10 April and be assisted by Bokeh FFF to create a fashion film masterpiece.

So young creatives and recent graduates what you waiting for? It’s time to get your creative juices flowing and create an award winning short film pitch for the theme The City Super Hero! Lights, camera, action… and awards a wait!

Pitches/treatments inspired by the theme; The City Super Hero  need to be submitted in PDF format to [email protected] with the subject line: Emerging Creative Award/Treatment- 2019 before Sunday the 7 April 2019.
