SAE Auckland Proud Sponsor of Show Me Shorts Film Festival


SAE Creative Media Institute (SAE Auckland) is a proud sponsor of the People’s Choice Award for the Show Me Shorts: Short Film Festival 2019.

The festival, which opens in Auckland this Saturday 5 October (and Wellington on 11 October) showcases a selection of the best new short films from more than 22 countries around the world. “My team and I have scoured the world to find a selection of the best new short films,” says festival director Gina Dellabarca.

The festival also hosts film-industry events and masterclasses for aspiring and established filmmakers.

The SAE People’s Choice Award will be granted to the film that receives the most viewer votes throughout the festival. It's a fitting prize for SAE, with its world leading programmes having been the preferred choice for screen production students across New Zealand and around the globe.

“We’re thrilled to support a prize that celebrates excellence in filmmaking on both a local and international level,” said Campus Director Dr Suzette Major. “Short filmmaking is a crucial aspect of any filmmaker’s career, and having the tools, training and support to do so is imperative.”

“We’re proud to offer industry qualified training here at SAE, and look forward to seeing the work of our alumni featured in the Show Me Shorts festival in years to come.”

The winner will receive $1,500 cash and a copy of Final Draft writing software. Audience members can vote for their favourite short film to win this award by completing a survey in cinemas, or on the Show Me Shorts website throughout the festival. The winner will be announced at the end of the festival.

Find out more about Show Me Shorts including the full festival programme and other events on their website.
