Calling for submission!
This year has indeed been a game-changer for many as we are restrained and curtailed by mobility and physical distancing. Unfortunately, such limitations have particularly hit the Perak Society of Performing Arts (PSPA) hard in its activities where pre-planned events and activities had to be cut down or cancelled altogether.
Nevertheless, as a vibrant organisation, PSPA moves along, transforms and adapts accordingly. The team has now decided to take on additional directions by embracing digitisation and expand into the film-making industry.
So, PSPA is proud to announce the inaugural PSPA Short Film Competition and invite all filmmakers to participate in this competition.
The theme for this year’s contest is “Iklim & Kita” or “Climate Change & Us!” There are some simple rules and regulations for the competition, and you can find them in the attached documents as well as the registration and declaration forms.
The closing date for the competition is 31st October, 2020 and prize presentation will be tentatively in December in conjunction with PSPA’s filmmaking workshop. The winning short films will be showcased then.
Competition are divided into two categories:
First Prize – RM3,000
Runners-up – RM2,000
Second Runners-up – RM1,000
Student (aged 18 and above and still studying in public or private institutions, polytechnic, colleges and universities)
First Prize – RM1,000 + workshop
Runners-up – RM800 + workshop
Second Runners-up – RM500 + workshop
Special Mention (Certificate) – free workshop
Let’s hope everyone can take this unfortunate pandemic as a lesson and be inspired, also to reflect on what we can do to be more self-conscious of our actions or inactions that will have consequential effects on Mother Nature. Hence, grab this opportunity to showcase your ideas to the public, as PSPA provides a platform for the motivated.
Feel free to contact PSPA – via FB messenger, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call PSPA office +605 545 0350 should you need clarification and explanation with regards to the short film competition. Happy shooting!
