Flinders University and Adelaide Film Festival will be presenting their first-ever Documentary Award in 2013! Finalists of this award will compete for a $10,000 cash prize, sponsored by Flinders University. The award will be judged by the AFF Documentary Jury.
“Documentary films are among the most immediate and insightful methods of communicating ideas and issues, and of sharing the lives and realities of others,” said Ms Diané Ranck, Director of the Marketing and Communications Office at Flinders.She further added, “This award plays an important role by supporting and encouraging Australia’s up‐and‐coming documentary‐makers. It is a natural extension of Flinders’ contribution to the industry made through our programs of education and training in screen and media.”
The Adelaide Film Festival promises to highlight the best of local, Australian and internationally produced films, with an eclectic mix of cinema, television, art and the moving image. The Festival’s full program will be announced in late August.
