In a coup for Machinima, films by Alfonso Garavito Olivar, Secret Rage, Tutsy Navarathna, Rysan Fall and Vilvi Rae have been selected as finalists along with 17 other conventional film for 'Project Homeless 2014'. All these films will be screened at the award ceremony on Friday the 11th of July at the Riverside Theatres, in Parramatta, New South Wales, Australia.
Project Homeless 2014 is a Challenge run by Screen My Shorts Inc & UWA in partnership with and sponsored by the Parramatta City Council. Here entrants of all ages, cultures and ability were invited to submit original creative digital content (conventional film and/or machinima) and win a share of the AUD 10,000 (L$2.28 Million) cash and prizes (with at least AUD 700 reserved for Machinima), and have their works exposed on the international stage.
