The inaugural Phenomena Short Film Festival is happening on the night of March 24 at The Orchards Niseko! It is free to enter and the event is designed to showcase the creativity of the winter community in Niseko and to bring people together for some fun towards the end of the season.
The theme of the film submissions should be “Nature, Space and the Unknown” which is purposefully pretty broad and the films need some story or structure to them. Importantly, all submissions must include some iteration of these three elements: A Map, Mt Yotéi, and a vehicle.
We ask that the films are between 1.5- 8 minutes in length and feature no illegal activity or nudity. We will have a panel of judges and some great prizes from local businesses which we will tell you more about in the coming days.
So start going through that gopro footage that no one ever looks at, get the phone or the professional camera out and come up with a short film. All genres accepted: ie animation, music video, comedy, documentary, sci-fi.
