WA SCREEN CULTURE AWARDS 2021 Nominees revealed

The nominees have been revealed for the 2021 WA Screen Culture Awards, which will be presented on Sunday, December 5 at Luna Leederville.

Celebrating the achievement, innovation and ambition of our local industry, the WA Screen Culture Awards (WASCAs) embrace all forms from new, established and emerging screen practices.

“Like the screen artists who’ve shared their work with our jury of national and international screen professionals, the WASCAs goes right out on a limb to highlight the convergence of forms and build bridges between them,” says Revelation Film Festival Director Richard Sowada.

“It’s an honour for us, our partners and our jury to participate in this platform that acknowledges and rewards achievement and innovation in the local screen industry, and we’re very proud to be associated in some small way with the creative lives of each and every one of them,” Sowada continued. “We deeply thank the 36 jury members made up of screen professionals from all corners of the industry and can wait to reveal their deliberations.”
