As part of the 2022 Festival of 'future' Urbanism, the University of Sydney and Monash University are hosting the Festival of Urbanism short film competition and documentary film course. Students at both universities also have the opportunity to attend two free, online filmmaking training sessions with Dr. Cameron Rose from United Pop.
In line with this year’s festival theme, students were asked to examine ‘future’ urbanism in whatever context and creative approach they choose. Films were judged by a panel from the University of Sydney and Monash University and chaired by Dr. Rose.
Thursday, 21 July from 2pm – 4pm - Training session 1
Pre-production (style, planning, locations, scripting) and production (filming)
Friday, 29 July from 2pm – 4pm - Training session 2
Post-production (basic editing techniques using Adobe Premiere)
A zoom link will be sent after registrations.
The short films must be no more than 5 minutes in length. Students are encouraged to create their own authentic film based on their interpretation of the theme of “Future Urbanism”. The moving image (short film) can evoke the story of place, capture its material essence and generate insights for potential solutions. It can also visualise ideation, speculate on imagined futures and advocate for people and the environment.
