We want filmmakers to send us their ideas for a 30 second short film on the topic of cat desexing.
Why cat desexing? The overpopulation of cats is a huge welfare issue for RSPCA Victoria. We need to spread the message that cat owners should desex their animals to ensure less cute kitties end up unwanted, on the streets and in animal shelters.
We’re looking for creative ideas to tackle this de-sexy topic! We’ll shortlist the entrants with our three favourite ideas – they will each receive $5000 to make their short film. Later this year these three short films will appear on the Melbourne Queer Film Festival website and Facebook page where the public will vote for their favourite. The creator of the most popular film will receive another $5000 in prize money!
RSPCA Victoria will use the winning film across various platforms to help spread the message that cat desexing is cool. So, we’re looking for fun, creative ideas that will “cut through” and engage the broader public and get them de-sexin’.
Here’s the lowdown:
RSPCA Victoria and our partners will be promoting the top three films. That means your work will be broadcast to not just the MQFF viewer community, but to all our supporters, business partners and more.
