My class made a film for a school project. Can I submit that film to the festival?
Absolutely! We welcome films made by individuals, groups or a whole class.
What sort of film should I make?
You can make your film in any style or medium that suits you, as long as it fits within this year's theme 'Saving our Species'. Be sure to make it creative, fun and inspiring to watch.
If you are an educator who would love your students to enter but don’t have time to create a program that will assist them to do so…
Why not invite an educator from Rahamim Ecology Centre to present a one day workshop on Documentary Film Making?
In this workshop your students will learn all the skills needed to start their film making journey. The workshop covers researching a topic, story-boards, basic camera skills and video editing. If your school can provide the equipment, we can provide the workshop that will help your students make their very own award-winning film.
Workshops available during Term 2 & 3 2019, in NSW and Victoria.
Contact Rahamim Ecology Centre today for more information.
