My Røde Reel short film competition returns


Røde Microphones has announced the return of the My Røde Reel short film competition, now in its seventh year. This year the manufacturer has upped the ante by offering a cash prize of A$1 million to be shared among the winners. Entries must be received by 7 October.

Over the past six years, more than 16,000 films from 94 countries have been submitted to the competition, with Røde awarding over A$3.5 million in prizes to emerging and established filmmakers. The competition provides a global platform for filmmakers, offering grants and scholarships and giving away Røde microphones and filmmaking equipment.

“Giving creatives a leg up has always been fundamental to what we do as a company,” says Røde CEO, Damien Wilson. “Whether it’s been through giving away gear, awarding scholarships or providing a platform to get their work in front of a huge audience, the objective of My Røde Reel has always been to help filmmakers take the next step in their career.

“People in the film industry are having it tough right now. This year, we wanted to not only give entrants the chance to win Røde mics and gear, but also offer a substantial amount of money to help kickstart the career of the next big thing, fund new projects, or cover living expenses so filmmakers can continue to work through these trying times. This money will make a big difference to a lot of people.”

The top three films for each of the competition categories will win a share in the A$1 million cash prize, except for the major prize, the Judges’ Choice, which has a prize of A$200,000. A total of 28 filmmakers stand to win a share in the prize money. Røde is also giving away a prize pack to the winners of the 10 categories including equipment from Lumix, Nanlite, Zhiyun, Mzed, Musicbed, Rhino, Adobe, Brevite, Pelican and Arri, in addition to its own brand microphones and accessories, bringing the total prize pool to over A$1.5 million.
