AACTA PITCH PRESENTED BY MINI
Launched in 2018, AACTA Pitch supports the next generation of Australian screen industry talent, encouraging new ideas and providing the invaluable opportunity for up-and-coming filmmakers to hone their skills by pitching their ideas to industry professionals. AACTA and MINI wanted to hear from Australia’s next generation of short filmmakers who have unique, creative and fun ideas for short films that are inspired by MINI’s unique manifestoes, and so created a national short film pitching competition, running in 2019, where the theme was “Forever Unexpected” and 2020, where the theme wads “Charging Creativity”.
MINI provided entrants with a manifesto that represented their brand, encouraging filmmakers to respond to a brief and build a film the best represented or utilised the themes presented, with the winner receiving $15,000 towards the production of their film.
