DEADLINE: 24 October 2007
Samsung Power & Grace Short Film Competition
Held in conjunction with the FEI 5 Star KL Grand Prix 2007, the competition aims to draw the attention and introduce budding filmmakers to the world of horses. This is an ideal platform for the younger generation to be involved indirectly in equestrian sports and will help promote the understanding for the nature of horses and portray their interpretation via this short film competition. This inaugural competition will be the first nationwide short film competition themed ‘Power & Grace’, a fitting phrase that depicts the nature and characteristic of the horse. Its objectives are to draw the attention of the non-horse community and thus exposing equestrian sports to a wider audience. The idea to have such a competition is also to introduce filmmakers to the world of horses and to personify the horse in various perspectives.
THE SHORT FILM COMPETITION AIMS TO ACHIEVE THE FOLLOWING:
To encourage budding filmmakers to use creativity on the beauty, grace, power and magnificence of the horse and depict them.
To promote resourcefulness among budding film directors and enthusiasts by using the horse as the catalyst for their imagination and ingenuity.
To provide a platform for the younger generation to get involved in film making and creating an additional avenue to showcase talents to the Malaysian Film Industry
The promotion of Malaysian artistic skills to depict the horse in its many forms and roles.
Actively promote the FEI 5 Star KL Grand Prix 2007.
