     This Year's Awards & Nominees

 

Welcome to Colortape International Film Festival's Nominees Page!

We joyfully announce that the 2016-2017 competition season is now closed. Therefore the 2017-2018 seson is open. Please note that our competitive seasons runs like the Australia's Financial (Fiscal) Year from 1st July-30th June the following year. The entries received were of high quality which made it very difficult for our judges to choose from. Some varied from small production ran by solo filmmakers to large budgets productions. Scripts from 20 to 200pages. Every single one was judged on its merit in its own category. The quality of films and the filmmakers are getting better and harder to choose from every year. In 2017 we have received over 500 quality entries in mixed categories, much lower than entries received bac in 2015 when we have received close to 839 entries, apparently Colortape is still the largest number of submission in any film competition in the South-East Asia and Pacific region by the number of submissions. Significantly up from previous years. In 2014-20 seasons we have received 480 films, in 2013-2014 season we have received over 730 entries. In 2013, we were overvehlmed, as we have received in excess of 880 submissions (large number of script). More than half (50%) of the entries were not entered on film platforms such s FilmFreeway nor were Withoutabox submissions and a large percentage, actually more than half (1/2) were students or waved fee entries. The iPOD & iPhone vidlets represented the largest category. There were less than ten (10) Australian entries. So there should be no fear that the local competitors were priviledged in any way. Dear competitors PLEASE wait for your certifcates to arrive via surface mail by the end of August.
Please do not congest our email boxes with inquiries till you receive your certificates by end of July the latest. If you have not received one by August then YES please send us an email. Thank you for your understanding.

Dear participant ust lie in previous years we have asked filmmakers to help us through the social networks with our fundraising efforts to raise more prizes, unfortunately we have not achieved our goals yet. Many filmmakers did not rate or review our festval, nor left a comment on FilmFreeeway platform about our festival. Also we felt tht many did not promote or share our facebook link and most certainly have not shared within your circles of friends, family, and colleagues about your involvement with us. Also as a token of appreciation we'd anticipate that many filmmakers would order a hardcopy of the Colortape Film Magazine in which your work will be featured (copies can be ordered via email at colortape@gmail.com, the price + postage in the amount of USD$14 can be processed via PayPal by sending the payment to info@iops.com.au (a softcope in PDF format will be sent to you for FREE via email as soon as is ready by the end of the year) but a hard copy could serve you as a complimentary memorabilia or souvenir for you to keep and to show off. Least we would like to ask of you is to give us a review on the FilmFreeway site. Much appreciated.

Special thanks goes to FilmFreeway for their fantastic service and web site, a truly professional platform aimed to help film festivals around the world! THANK YOU!

Important message about Screening of your films this year: Due to ongoing negotiations with venue operators (cinema and outdoor facilities), ongoing negotiation with the local shires & Councils, ongoing negotiations with insurance companies over public liability and indemnity covers, and more importantly ongoing negotiations with the Australian Justice Department over Classifications of your films (approval for screeining outdoor, in an uncontrolled environment) with many shires having many restrictions according to local shire laws we are still working on when, where and which films will be suited to be screened at any particular venue or event (eg: outdoor). Hence, no decission has been made yet. We will notify you once we know the details. It is possible that we may screen closer to the end of the year, as the weather currently is wet and cold in South East Queensland. A more suitable condition and time needs to be found too beside all the issues already mentioned. Screening events, times and locations, dates etc will be updated closer to December period and the information will be placed at www.colortapeinternational.com/event.htm
