MLTAV Member School Short-Film Competition - Why Learning Languages is Important - APPLICATIONS OPEN PDF Print E-mail

MLTAV Member School Short-Film Competition

Applications NOW OPEN!

Why Learning Languages is Important

The MLTAV is pleased to announce a Member School Short-Film Competition. Short-Film entries will creatively showcase the importance of learning Languages (other than English). How schools interpret and approach this is flexible. The film-making process will act as a reflection on the importance of Languages Education for the film-makers; the films themselves will become a valuable resource to support MLTAV advocacy with politicians, leading up to the 2018 State Election.

 

Conditions:

  • Entry is free;
  • Maximum of one entry per Language, per member school;
  • Entries will be judged by representatives from the MLTAV Committee and one other external film critic;
  • There will be one winner from Primary School entries and another from Secondary School entries;
  • MLTAV will have the right to use the winning entries for purposes of showcasing the short-film competition as well as ongoing advocacy for the importance of Languages education in Victoria;
  • Entries must submit standard permission slips to MLTAV for everyone appearing in the film - MLTAV can provide a template for this.

 

Criteria:

  • Entries must be no more than five minutes in length;
  • Students, teachers and school leadership must be involved in the film-making process;
  • All footage used in the film must be original work - no third party or copyright material.

 

Prizes will be awarded for the two winning school short-film entries. A certificate of participation will be provided for all other entries. Winners will be announced in the July edition of Languages Victoria, along with links to view them. Winning entries will subsequently be made available via the MLTAV website and used by MLTAV for advocacy purposes. MLTAV representatives will personally present the prizes to the two winning schools.

 

Competition submissions are now open and close Friday 15 June 2018. Entries will be submitted to MLTAV via a dropbox process. Please refer any questions about the competition to Kerry O’Connor, Office Manager, MLTAV - 0437 130 976 / This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
