APPLICATIONS OPEN FOR
2023 FILM PROGRAM
Invitation for Filmmakers and Creatives
TEDxSydney is looking for proposals for (very) short films, to be produced for TEDxSydney and screened at our flagship event on Friday 1 September 2023.
TEDxSydney is the leading platform for Australian Ideas Worth Spreading. We offer the ideal forum to screen your film to a large and very appreciative audience.
〉THE BRIEF: Filmmakers are invited to interpret the theme “TIPPING POINT” as loosely or as closely as they like.
“The tipping point is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behaviour crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire.”
And how can we reimagine our cities, evolve how we work, do politics, protect our health, and re-construct our economic systems to be fit for the purpose of a new era?
〉THE RULES: There are almost no rules, except films must be between 30 seconds and 3 minutes duration.
We are looking for films from existing filmmakers that offer unique and interesting perspectives by way of the form they take, subject they tackle or concept they explore.
Films that are designed to fit this micro-sized format, rather than being squeezed into it. Think BIG and keep it short.
Documentary, experimental, animation, comedy, drama and any other ideas you might have – this is a wonderful forum to share your film in front of a dedicated TEDxSydney online audience and a live audience of up to 3,000 people in the room.
Read the FAQS and use the form below to submit your proposal.
〉SUBMISSIONS DUE BY 14 APRIL 2023
TEDxSydney connects people through ideas. One of the world’s largest TEDx events, we use talks, performances, films and debate to stimulate conversations. The film program is curated to complement the talks and performances, and is a vital pillar of programming.
TEDxSydney films are viewed by a vast number of like-minded creatives online, are programmed in other prestigious film festivals and have even been known to win major international awards.
