12. Canon’s FilmFIVE Festival returns to seek creative young talent
Calling all Christopher Nolans and Kathryn Bigelows out there: Canon Singapore has launched its second FilmFIVE Festival, a nation-wide filmmaking competition which seeks to nurture aspiring filmmakers from educational institutions, and empower them to express their creativity through films and photography. In partnership with the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) this year, the FilmFIVE Festival will run from 27 April to 20 September 2019.
The theme for this year is any word that begins with ‘Re’. Inspired by Canon’s new line of full frame mirrorless cameras – the EOS R and EOS RP – where the R stands for ‘Reimagine’, go wild with your short film, and interpret the theme however you’d like!
There will be two categories: secondary school, and open youth (for participants below the age of 30).
Don’t worry if you think that your film-making skills aren’t up to par: there will be a complimentary three-day filmmaking boot camp workshop held in end June, helmed by Canon Imaging Academy (CIA), where you’ll have a chance to shoot with Canon’s cameras and other production equipment supported by brand partners! You can also loan Canon’s new full-frame mirrorless cameras to do their actual shoot after the boot camp.
