If you could nudge a neighbour to change a behaviour, wouldn’t you?
Nudge by Mirvac Sustainable Film Competition is our way to get people thinking, talking and learning about sustainability. Mirvac has set a goal to educate 1 million people about sustainability by 2020. It’s a big idea that relies on the potential in all of us to motivate, educate and engage and we’re looking to budding film-makers to help us spread the word.
Nudge is open to anybody who feels inspired to create a three minute film on the theme, Reimagining Resources.
We’re looking for creativity and innovation, films that will make us smile or even cry, laugh out loud or want to sing along and dance. But above all, films with the power to change behaviour to create a better world.
Films can be submitted into the Open category for all ages, or Students under 18 from 1 April 2016 until 1 November 2016 and must include at least one of four elements - waste, water, energy and materials – in any genre, animation, drama, comedy, musical or dance.
Films that meet the competition criteria will be posted to a dedicated You Tube channel and a film review committee will select a shortlist of five films from each of the two categories for consideration by the Judging Panel. Judges include social entrepreneur and Do Something founder Jon Dee; Cool Australia founder and CEO Jason Kimberley; and Mirvac Head of Sustainability Paul Edwards.
The judges will be looking for quality productions that have emotional power and resonance. They can be courageous and audacious, cutting edge or cuttingly funny but ultimately the judging panel is looking for creative efforts that will inspire change.
Awards & Prizes
Winning films will be announced on the competition website (http://nudgebymirvac.com), on Tuesday, 30 November 2016.
Prizes will be announced soon -- Stay tuned!
