Lexus Australia Short Film Fellowship winners will debut new short films at the 2019 Sydney Film Festival, which opened this week alongside a uniquely styled Lexus UX.
Lexus Australia and Sydney Film Festival last year awarded four aspiring cinematic directors $50,000 each to produce their next big-screen creations, which will be shown at the Lexus Australia Short Film Festival Gala Premiere next week.
A special UX 250h is being displayed throughout the Sydney Film Festival featuring images from the Lexus Australia Short Film Fellowship winners' short films wrapped around the luxury compact SUV in celebration of their work. Lexus Australia was also the opening night partner of the Sydney Film Festival. Festival director Nashen Moodley opened this year's event in a packed State Theatre alongside Lexus Australia senior manager sales and marketing Vin Naidoo. "Lexus is proud to have supported Australian film-making for many years," Mr Naidoo said. "Film has been an intrinsic part of our brand - for us, it's about the experiences, going beyond vehicle manufacturing and retailing, and film is a big part of that."
