‘Life in Pictures’ short film competition

The Department of Communities is collaborating with Revelation Perth International Film Festival to raise awareness about ageism and positive ageing.

Amateur and professional filmmakers of any age are invited to create a short film to encourage discussion, interaction, and understanding about aspects of ageing and ageism, exploring ways that ageism can be reduced, and bring to light stories of ageing positively.
