DigiSPAA 2008

DigiSPAA 2008 (Entries Now Open)

DigiSPAA is an exciting and bold initiative designed to encourage and foster digital feature film production.

Now in its fourth year, DigiSPAA provides a forum for Australian and New Zealand filmmakers to showcase their work in a competitive environment.

Finalists in the DigiSPAA competition are screened during SPAA Fringe and the winner of the SPAArtan Award will be announced at the SPAA Conference in November 2008.

The recipient of the SPAArtan award, sponsored by Movie Network, receives a cash prize of $15,000 as well as $20,000 worth of post-production sponsored by the Movie Network Channels, a 12 month subscription to Movie Network, and return airfares and free registration to the prestigious Rotterdam Cinemart International Feature Film Market. The winning entry will also be screened on the Movie Extra channel.

Applications are now open. Please send all requirements by 19th September 2008.

Producer John L Simpson (who most recently came to the attention of film audiences as the distributor of The Jammed) was awarded the inaugural SPAARTAN Award in 2007 for his feature film, Men's Group, directed by Michael Joy. Simpson's film was up against contenders including Boxing Day, produced by Kristian Moliere and directed by Kriv Stenders.

Digi SPAA is a creative project of the Screen Producers Association of Australia (SPAA) an industry body that represents Australian independent film and television producers on all issues affecting the business and creative aspects of screen production.

The judges for 2008 include Geoff Brown, Executive Director of SPAA, Melanie Coombs, Producer of the Oscar winning Harvie Krumpet, Antony I. Ginnane, President of IFM World Releasing Inc., Producer Daniel Scharf (Romper Stomper) and Colleen Meldrum, Program Director of Movie Network.
